Mickguard Posted June 4, 2006 Report Share Posted June 4, 2006 I keep coming back to Zachary Guitars and his design ideas (I'm not debating his attitude here, just his ideas). I'm getting ready to shape my headstock -- I can go with a traditional drop down, or even an angled neck. But Zachary's headstock idea makes more and more sense to me. I don't really like the way he executes it -- all those string trees, and obviously you can't hang a guitar with a headstock like that (I have young kids, my guitars have to be hung). But the idea of maintaining as much of the thickness of the wood as possible past the nut makes a lot of sense to me. I think the idea would work better as a 6 in line anyway --and I'd use a bar instead of strings trees, like the old Japanese guitars used to have. Except I'd use a slippery material like a trem nut blank. In fact, since I'm going with a zero nut, I'm thinking I could combine the string guide with this compression bar somehow. I'm just wondering what you all think about the basic idea of the design. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
