I just assume that anyone that says "Tyler" hasn't played one or is an idiot.
Do you have a picture? You might be surprised by some that I thought were goners, that are fixed! It’s worth a second opinion
Wow i THOUGHT I knew what the ugliest headstock was but after only 3 pages in I realize I know nothing.
Seriously, did that headstock solve the G-string out-of-tune problem? The string doesn't have the break angle at the nut.
Say what you want abnout the headstock, every Tyler I've ever played has sounded great and felt great.
I actually kinda like the holdsworth/carvin headstock.
I always thought they looked like the result of an industrial accident
Well what do I know. I like many of the unpopular ones.
Tyler, PRS, etc.
There's a dark humour in the Tyler headstock that I get a kick out of.
This one is hilarious, IMO:
Yup love that
As well as the headstock tip logo
I like the reverend and Friedman ones... the rev just looks like an altered-enough fender and there’s something about the stepped look of the Friedman that I like a lot. Same with the suhr stepped ones.
Nobody is talking about how it's made or how it feels to play, etc. It's purely aesthetics. And not of the guitar either - just the headstock. It's ok to like a guitar but not care for the headstock.
That is one butt ugly guitar. I'd go for ugliest GUITAR ever not just headstock!
Looks like a disease is growing out of it
Oh, and I happen to really like the Tyler headstock.
This looks like it came from Minecraft!
The other thing I'll say about this headstock and why I find it so unappealing is that it reeks of fear on Gibson's part, and a lack of confidence in their main line guitars.
"We better make sure to go out of our way to make our mid range Les Pauls look a lot crappier than our expensive ones to make sure people know they're different. Otherwise how will they know?"
It tells me that Gibson knows it can't depend on the quality its own guitars to separate themselves from the cheaper versions, so they intentionally hamstring their low-to-mid range stuff in the image department, the only thing Gibson can rely on nowadays.
I've never played one but, have heard nothing but good things about them.
