    Heya, I'm looking around for pics of Fender headstocks with binding wrapping around (and up the curve to the fingerboard).
    Anyone have pics? All I can find is 1 or 2 of Billy Gibbons guitars like that.

    There's gotta be classy Jazzmasters or some "Strat Supreme" set up like this...

    They used to make a Robben Ford model that had a bound headstock, but its tuners are #+3 like a Gibson.

    Thanks guys, very helpful!
    I think all the ones Ben posted are tilt-back headstocks so no bent (2 axis) binding. Tim's pics show a super shallow headstock carve and thin, shallow binding.
    I'm in my shop heating and bending the hell out of cream binding on a maple/maple chambered neck with relieved headstock and looking for inspiration. :)
    just found this:
