    Beeeyouuutifull until you get to the headstock. Then it's just a trainwreck.

    I like the body a lot. I thought the neck length looked funny, so I checked and yep, it's a 25" scale. I think that's what makes the headstock look even more out of place. I still like the traditional Fender design. For the price, I'd rather have a Custom Shop Fender.

    I have played them and they are very nice. Different, but top shelf stuff.

    The headstock doesn't stop me at all. It goes well with the whole guitar because it's NOT a Fender anyway... I dig that guitar something fierce.

    I'm with Eric on this one ... other than the headstock it looks like a nice variation on the Tele-theme. Bet it sounds good too ... not necessarily like a Tele - but good nevertheless ...

    i really like the headstock.

    in my opinion, most 6-inline non fender headstocks look horrendous to me.

    If it's not going to be a real fender shape, might as well be something classy like a 3 on a side rather than a hockey stick or Cort style dealy, or even worse, the G&L style.

    Personally, what is above the nut is no concern to me, be it shape or logo. I cant see it while playing except the top down look, and it would not bother me to only see three tuners along the top. Hope it rocks!

    I think the headstock is fine. A lot nicer than the pointy "avoid the trademark" designs out there. They look nice (to me anyway).

    If you put a bag over the headstock, it's actually a nice-looking guitar. :)

    I'll have to side with the "odd headstock, but she's a real beaut" club. Been GASsin' for a P-90 equipped Tele for some time now.
