    I don't care for the graphics on the headstock, but the headstock shape--there's just something about it I really dig.

    As an overall package, the guitar shines :yesway:

    The Holdsworth headstock is probably Carvin's most appealing headstock IMO.

    The Holdsworth and the new DC600 headstock are my two favorite current Carvin headstocks. I miss their old pointy headstocks from the 80's/90's that didn't have so much angle to them.

    I think it's awesome. I also think the Holdsworth headstock kicks ass. Carvin's best by far.

    Being a big comic geek, I love this.

    I think the Holdsworth Headstock is easily my favourite the Carvin offer, super sleek!

    You know a headstock is polarizing when it keeps people from complaining about the pickup rings.

    If they moved the graphic down just a couple of inches, they could probably have made the tune-o-matic look like a disproportionately enormous boner.

    If people saw you with that they'd come up to it, read what's in the speech bubbles in an amusing mock superhero voice.
