Mickguard Posted March 1, 2006 Report Share Posted March 1, 2006 So I've been wondering... Is there any structural reason for using a wider headstock (like a Les Paul)? Seems to me, a design like the Klein Headstock has the advantage of allowing the strings to remain in a more or less straight line. Which I can only imagine has to be a better way of doing it. So is there a reason to want your strings to move out at an angle after the nut? Does that help to keep them in the nut slots? Of course, wider vs narrower is also a question of aesthetics....but I really like the narrow design for my next build. EDIT: Oops! just realized I posted this in the wrong forum --would one of you omnipotent mods like to move this to the solidbody discussion area, please?
