    This is what is considered to be a "Gumby" Headstock?

    Just to satisfy my curiosity. I have read the term, but had actually seen one.

    Sadly, I only play tenors. Best of luck with your sale.

    Kamaka concerts are modeled after Polynesian sails...but yes, they are also called Gumby headstocks.

    No this is not a gumby headstock. Sail heads and Gumbys are completely different. the Sail head is more narrow and has a point at the top. The Gumby is wider and rounded instead of pointed.

    No expert here, but I think the so-called Sail and Gumby headstocks on Kamakas are the same thing. Mostly all concerts, but apparently some older tenors too. The one on left below was identified as Gumby, one on right as Sail. They sure look similar to me.

    John,

    I agree, but I’m no expert in slang.

    I updated the original post to reflect the Gumby and Sailstock monikers... I dropped the price to add to the discussion. Thank you,
