    Personally it's either the classic Fender or Hofner.

    I've always really loved the Musicman headstock.

    I like the Lakland 5 string headstock. I love the 3+2, but only wish it it was angled instead of having a string tree.

    Hard not to like a Fender headstock. Rickenbacker deserves mention, but my favorite is many peoples' least liked, apparently... I love the G&L "eye gouger."

    This is in transit on the way to me but the headstock is part of what sold me on it.
