    I actually like the guitars, not the headstocks. The Grail headstock reminds me of a boat paddle. I was interested in the Blood Eagle until I saw the ugly routed headstock. Kills it for me!:iough:

    When it come to headstocks there is Fender then everyone else.
    Not sure if it was Leo or George behind the Fender headstock designs but they nailed it.

    The wylde audio LP style headstock really isn't that bad. The blood eagle isn't really nice at all.

    Honestly the odin headstock is probably the only decent lookin thing from wylde audio...

    History has it that Leo and George took some artistic liberties lifting the design from Bigsby, actually:
