I really thought this thread would end immediately after the first mention of the fender strat head stock and yet it keeps going....
It is one of my least-favorite headstocks and I own a Strat (for now...) :lol:

Call me boring but to me the PRS, LesPaul Custom and Fender Tele headstocks are all up there.

I like the Suhr ones quite a bit as well, but nothing really beats the design of these classic headstocks IMO.

Another thread I was just posting in made me think of Moser guitars. I actually think his headstocks are generally super cool, but only as long as they're not on any of my guitars. :lol: I don't wanna lose an eye.

I love reversed inline headstocks that are somewhat pointy :p

I think Solar has the best overall design currently.

I have a massive soft spot for Ibanez headstocks (and instruments in general).

When it comes to non-inline headstocks it's the BC Rich widow headstock for me. Preferably on a Warlock body.

Not really a fan of traditional designs - with the exception of a Fender Strat with reversed headstock :)

Guys.... I'm Shocked, SHOCKED!! that nobody picked the granddaddy of them all, the ideal to which all pretenders aspire, the pinnacle of industrial design that was cool enough to put an odd experimental widget into the hands of a million guitarists and remains hugely popular and unchanged to this very day, 74 years (!!) later.

Simple, curvaceous, innovative and advanced for it's day, this timeless triumph of design (and function) is so attractive, it even makes a Telecaster sexy!
