Hey everyone and anyone, do you guys happen to see any websites that have massive amounts of ukulele headstocks? (I'm drawing up a few designs of custom ukes, incase I need them for future purchase *CURSE YOU UAS* )

Also, if anyone would be kind enough, to post some different types of headstocks, the unique ones are highly welcomed :P

Thanks alot!

I drew the headstock below for a Kepasa custom, and the builder pretty much replicated it exactly:

Here's a telecaster style headstock:

Koa Works has a fairly unique headstock shape:

Careful with that headstock! You could put out someone's eye.

Check out the Ukulele Building/Luthier's Lounge Forum thread "My Cherry-lele" (uke #0002). I really like Matt Clara's curled headstock and the reverse curl at the base of the fretboard.

He's frequently on that forum. He's one of the luthiers involved in the Fun Build, which is a thread worth reading.
