Mickguard Posted March 13, 2006 Report Share Posted March 13, 2006 I can't believe this subject hasn't come up...I've searched the entire forum, but found nothing directly related. Basically, I came across the Groove Tube Fatfinger the other night...I'd never encountered this before, nor the concept of adding mass to the headstock. So I'm wondering how much of this is hype and how much is fact? Especially since I'm looking at a skinny headstock design. Is there an optimal mass for the headstock? Or better yet, is there an optimal size and weight to an attachment like a fatfinger --does size matter? And what about placement? Do you just clip these things on wherever you can, or does the 'effect' change depending on where you place it? If it's such a breakthrough, why aren't guitars designed to include the extra mass? If the extra mass itself is important, does the material matter -- why not use wood? There are some dense woods out there, seems like that'd be interesting. For example, one could take a block of nice looking wood, route a groove in it, line that with protective felt, so the whole thing will attach snugly to the headstock. No screws, no clamp, and you could carve it to look good too. I'm thinking of cool things you could do with that idea --add an extra dimension to the headstock, a 3D logo, etc.... All right, all right, I'll get back to work (grumble, moan, complain, grouse) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
