Hi guys,

Was wondering what your thoughts are on this headstock? I like it, but my wife isn't so sure....

Really like it. The Gibson shape is one of my favorites. While similar, this shape is just unique enough to be both classic and original.

I voted no although it would depend VERY much on what the body looked like. I'm a bit of a techno nut so I would be FAR more impressed if you came up with your own design that kept the strings running straight through the nut or as close as possible to straight.

I really like it....I do favor more traditional looking ukuleles, and this fits right in there!

Definitely looks like a classic, vintage design. I like it a lot.

I like it. It does remind me of the headstock on an old no-name ukulele I own...

The top is a bit LoPrinzi and that's no bad thing!

The wood is beautiful and a good contrast to the dark friction pegs. The shape is nice and does lend itself to make one think of a LoPrinzi or vintage Gibson as mentioned above.
