    The headstock is one of the only things i don't like about that guitar.

    Looks like a pretty standard custom if you ask me :shrug:

    Did anyone else see the face on the body? If you look at the bridge holes and then the ferules it looks like a frown :lol:

    Nice wood! Congrats!

    But, what kind of tuners are you going to use? Looks odd..:scratch:

    Looking good!
    The GMW headstocks have a recess in the back of them.
    go here
    WELCOME TO THE HOME OF GMW GUITAR WORKS!!!!!!!!!!
    click on GMW guitars, then click on the headstocks button and pick one and load the flash clip for it.
    it shows it from every angle
    Lee only uses the best of every thing , I don't know what Agile uses but I doubt it's the same hardware.

    It's been quiet on the "7" front over there, do you know if Lee finished the other two 7's he was working on yet?

    LOVE the guitar, but the headstock really doesn't work for me; the 'butt' is far too large - it's quite unattractive IMHO.

    Nice I can't wait for a review.
    that millenium headstock looks much better with some hardware on it.
    any work from Lee on the other 7's that were in progress?
