Slotted Headstock

Recommended Posts


I'm looking for design ideas for a slotted headstock for a nylon string guitar. Ideally I'd like to avoid the standard 3 a side tuning peg plates, and use individual 3 a side tuners. Perhaps I could use steel string tuners for the nylon string guitar? Or are there any individual tuners made for nylons?

I thought I'd seen some unusual slotted headstocks on the forum before, but can't find them now with the search engine.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

You could do something similar to what Rickenbacker does on their 12 strings... http://homer.netmar.com/~muscon2/r211b.jpg

Only without the tuners for the other six strings, of course. If you were looking to keep a solid headstock, you could work with some variations of the Rickenbacker design.

I don't know if theres a significant difference between nylon and steel string tuning machines, but Stew-Mac has some nice slotted-headstock-style individual tuners.
