Angled Headstock vs. Straight Headstock
I'm starting to do some research on piecing my first bass together. I've been playing on the same P-bass for 15 years and a SDGR SR-405 that I picked up about 8-9 years ago, so I think it's about time for a change or at least something new. I've played on tons of brands and styles, and I have decided that the dense woods like bubinga, wenge, ovangkol, and koa have more of the sound that I'm looking for with the mid growly sound similar to warwicks. I would like a warwick, but I'm not settling for one, so until I can afford the one I want then I'm building. I do realize this can get pricey, but i can buy pieces. That's the key.
My question at the moment is, what is the major differences between angled headstocks and straight headstocks? How do these affect sounds in their own way, if at all? Does it carry more sustain? Pass on ANY info on this if ya don't mind, or anything else that might be beneficial for me to know while I start piecing my *hopefully* masterpiece together.
