    I am having a non-reverse Firebird built. I don't like the headstock Gibson used on this model so we are thinking about doing something different. Please show me some pictures of big headstock that have six tuners in line that you think might look good on it.

    Here is the Non-Reverse Firebird encase you don't remember what they look like.

    I always liked the Kramer pointy.

    A Gibson Trini Lopez headstock would look good on there:

    I guess only someone with your user name would prefer this

    Dick jokes deliver.

    The Trinibird does look pretty cool.

    It is, but it's more symetrical, and doesn't have the goofy flip by the low E string tuner.

    I love the reverse headstock on the older reverse Firebirds. On a non reverse bird, I think a reverse original headstock would look cool.

    Why 6 in line only? What would look badass is Les Paul Custom with split diamond and binding.

    If it must be reversed, then:

    Explorer headstock, but reversed. LeftyXPL headtock on a righty body NOT the "reverse Explorer" gumby-under-a-steamroller shape.

    For something completely different, how about a slotted headstock? You could still do 6 non a side, like half a 12 string.

    I always figured if I made one with a Warmoth body and neck I'd use a reversed strat headstock.

    Keep it in the Gibson family and do an explorer type headstock
