In no particular order

Les paul custom
Prs
Guild
Dean
EBMM 4+2

They're iconic but I think most fender headstocks are dull and ugly

Fender '72 Tele (the fat one)
Gibson Explorer
Pre-Fender Jackson
Ovation (probably will catch heat but it looks cool!)

When I was young I used to think the Tele head stack not too attractive.
Nowadays I see them as perfection;

This (to me) is the greatest of all time. The guitar dubbed Montequisto (started by Jimmy D'Aquisto and completed by John Monteleone) has got to be my number one. I can stare at this for hours. Numbers 2-5 are regarding production instruments: les paul, fender strat, Suhr, PRS.
