You're probably saying that 'cause you can't see the headstock. :naughty:

Like you, I don't get the headstock hate myself. It looks decent, perhaps not so artsy as others but its sure better than a banana or a Jackson eye-poker. Does the damned thing work?
Yes, oh yess!

Slinky string feel on that luscious ebony board, all mahogany body, and those pick ups are simply amazing.

The bridge P90 goes from a biting growl to a clean rich chime as one explores the range of available tones with the knobs.

The neck Alnico V staple bellows like a moose in heat, sings like an angel, or whispers like a gentle lover in the night.

Add a little overdrive and it wails like a horny angel..

It works just fine. I've been wallowing in tone using a 68 Bandmaster (AB763) for cleans and a JCM800 to put a little hair on it..

Stays in tune quite well too.

Sorry guys, just had to have a laugh. :)

Can you stop trolling please? I mean, ok you made your point, but then you are not funny anymore. You are just filling threads with pointless crap.

................are you serious? I'm not trolling. Lighten up..........way bigger issues in the World to get uptight about.

I get it, you like the HS.............I don't & many others feel the same way. You'll just have to live with it.

Most of what is posted in this entire section comes down to pointless crap if you haven't noticed yet.

:cheers2:

I typically like your posts man, they are funny, but seven posts to say the same thing about the fact you don't like the headstock, it is technically trolling (apart the fact I don't remember a single post by you saying something positive about anything in general...).
Sorry, I know I probably sound harsh, but my personal opinion is that one joke is funny, two jokes about same thing it may be still funny....seven jokes on the same thing are utterly boring.

I'm not for sure taking anything in a forum about guitars, too seriously, just saying that we've got (and noted) your point.

:cheers2:

You might not be aware of this, but from memory I have given ~ 35,000 likes to members posts here, the bulk of which relate to Members NGD's & pics posted in the Historics Section. That was about a year or so ago when the new, improved MLPF came to being.

So your reference to my................."(apart the fact I don't remember a single post by you saying something positive about anything in general...)."...........I disagree with but you are entitled to your opinion.

FWIW, I would love to see Heritage well & truly stick it up HJ but that is my personal opinion & that often seems to offend the Gibson lovers in this Section of MLPF (regardless of what Gibson does).

:cheers2:

Guess it all depends on one's point of view.. I spend more time playing it, than looking at it.

Too bad no one enlightened this guy:


Go ahead, keep listening with your eyes.
The headstock don’t bother me one bit....like any make of guitar,if it’s got that something,I’m sure gonna use it.

On a more personal note, I’m still bummed that Gary is gone.

Turrible headstock ya'll. I actually like the horns, though. I've played 4 and 2 were very good, the other 2 were pretty bad. Could have been the setups though. Just shave a couple inches off the top and I'm willing to give one a go.
