    Really dig the Moollon headstocks. Skjold and Mattisson are also nice.

    I love me the Rickenbacker headstock. Especially in Fireglo/Mapleglo/Walnut where you can visibly see the wings.

    Perfect size and shape. Although IMO it only works on their basses, not fond of it on the guitars.

    Also dig Reverend.

    For guitars I'd have to say Gibson or a Fender Tele.

    Gotta go with Fender on this one. Specifically the CBS era. I just love the big ole' logo.

    While I do not think this is the MOST attractive, I've always loved the curves and swept back tuners of the Washburn Force 4 ABT.

    I know it's variation on the Fender headstock, but Lakland has always been my favorite headstock design.
