Okay Here's one you probably will never see another one soon of...Custom white label...the highest build of Koaloha customs made for Walt Keale...Don't ask as the wait is several years long for a white label...

I'm not a big fan of slot heads in general, but this one is badass :cool: And KoAloha tenor headstocks are huge to begin with, so it's almost like this is the way they were meant to look. Totally awesome.

The video is excellent, and touching. I saw it earlier. Wish it was on here. I can't figure out a way to email/share it.

What's interesting is that many customs don't use the unibrace

Hey Daniel..

these don't use the uni-brace..more conventional bracing.. I think

What's the advantage of the slotted headstock?

There is a thread in the Luthiers lounge that Chuck Moore and Rick Turner chimed in on slotted headstocks..check out what two of the best builders on the UU said about slotted headstocks..

yeah, I find it odd...maybe unibrace allows them to build quicker
