    It's the Tele for me now. Took over 30 years of playing before I liked it and now it is embedded in my brain eye as the greatest design ever. Guitar and headstock.

    The smaller Strat headstock is pretty much the bees knees too.

    I like the classic Strat, but I'd buy and play the Tele first.

    Top left on a Strat but never on a Tele; top right always on a Tele. The oversize Strat head is an abomination and as for the broken-off Gibson headstock, so what? I don't like Les Pauls much anyway, so it's not my concern.

    I am headstock blind. I have never really paid all that much attention to them. If the tuning pegs worked properly my concern with the headstock was complete.

    All fine by me except the balloon animal Strat headstock on the bottom left. Along with accompanying large print logo for small children and the elderly.

    I like the one that isn’t broken. Unless it’s the big CBS Strat headstock. Screw that.

    I like tele headstocks the best. Not really due to the look, more because for some reason I seem to play better and feel more comfortable with the smaller headstock.

    I’m partial to the big headed strat over the classic. The Tele is beautiful in its own right. The classic Gibson may be my all time favorite. i love a 3x2 headstock but that’s just my opinion

    I saw it but didn't know you were joking. I've heard all Gibson headstocks are like that.

    Classic strat out of the 4 but JM headstocks are the best IMO it's like a 70s headstocks done right but already done prior

    Honestly, I'm sort of a fan of a large Fender headstocks. I prefer the smaller ones, but the large ones are kind of cool.

    Classic Strat. It’s a near-perfect example of industrial design.

    Tele is nice too, obviously.

    The big Strat is nasty.

    The other one is fine, but not particularly inspiring. And it’s a bad design, obviously.
