Couldn't get back sooner- needed coupla px also:
1- headstock angle "does a great job of pulling the A string down at the proper angle" as also, the others.
2- allows straight line from nut to tuner post (been a few recent posts regarding that)
3- no need to bend/tuck strings under or around extra hardware
or thread strings thru holes to string/restring.
4- no drag or snagging of windings on washers/plates, bars, or add'l hardware edges.
5- no need for 'ultralite' tuners to compensate for add'l metal/ hi-mass hdwe added to weight of headstock.
Those few for starters, just from my angle of view-
I'm sure there are plenty of diff views.
IMO a good enough design doesn't need 'work-arounds'.
This is how some of us learn new things- from other's successes or other. And sometimes diff ways are just fun.
