I'm pretty sure it ensures proper break angle over the nut for the D and G strings.
i was expecting:
"it grows strings, silly"
Ok, well then my next question is... what does the break angle do? (I know what it is, what does it effect?)
The easiest answer is that it prevents the string from popping out of the nut slot, an otherwise common problem with non angled headstocks.
Thank you, also thank you for correcting my grammar. I was never sure which was right.
It also keeps the string from making an obnoxious boooooiiiiiiiiiiiing sound when you play open strings.
Compensates for bad design.
^Or on the other hand, is really good design.
also, while bigger strings are not as flexible, raises the action a wee bit at the fisrt few positions, making for less buzz
