Sort of tongue-in-cheek question, but I was looking at my 90’s Epiphone headstock vs. a typical Gibson version. Most of the discussions so far have been based mostly on aesthetics. A lot of the extra wood is between the nut and the E and e tuners. Years ago, they even sold this device that clamped on to the headstock to add mass and the resulting sustain. I, personally, have never minded the “clipped ear” design, but then I never minded the Heritage ones that seem to offend a lot of folks either. So will this reduced mass headstock design hurt tone/sustain?
