    not only the headstock, IMHO the body was reshaped too, to look more strat. Probably a Yamaha Pacifica-102-Telly.

    My God, is that stupid.

    And I bet you that all of the strings, including the higher ones, use the original tuners.

    So you have to turn the higher ones in reverse compared to standard 3/3.

    It's a left-handed conversion - so I 'get' the need to have the low string tuners closer to hand - but still threw up just a little in my mouth.

    I like headstocks that don't have more wood than they need to ... but I also like them carved and finished neatly.

    Deranged woodworker with short arms? Not a guitar player, surely?
    Could have at least clipped off the excess.

    I've been eyeing some guitars that have features I like - but paint jobs that I don't. Maybe candidates for "different" refinishes, as they are not particularly valuable as such...
