    I really hope someone ends up explaining this one. I need to know.

    Don't have a clue as to how it got that way but according to some luthiers, that headstock would probably work better than the original. Look at the length beyond the nut of the B string. That's an option from Fodera;)
  5. Didn't you know that the reverse headstock trend has returned?...And Ernie Ball was the first company to respond to this overwhelming demand.:D

    Brad, would it really make much of a difference which peg the B-string was attached to? It APPEARS that the the 2 pegs(the B and G) don't have much of a difference in length.

    ? The nut-to-peg distance on the B is twice that on the G.

    It looks like they made the lefty body but only had a right handed neck left over so they chucked that on. Or mabye they were just trying to be "different".:D
  11. Man with those OLP basses out there this could be a tough nut to crack....

    I find it funny that the reverse headstock didn't receive so much as a mention in the description. Hell, I would think it would say something like "Special Custom One-of-a-Kind Genuine Collector's Reverse Ernie Ball Musicman Stingray 5!!!!!!"

    I'm thinking that two buddies (one right handed and the other left handed) decided to swap necks. somewhere out there is a righty bass with a lefty neck.
