    Matching headstock in white does it for me...
     
  3. Rickenbacker 4001/4003 style wins hands down for me. Just a classic look; the truss rod cover with the 1950s style logo completes it.

    Gibson Jrs. – small head, no inlays, white-button 3-on-a-plate tuners. A thing of beauty to me.

    Threads like this one lead me to believe that no matter what the shape of a headstock design, someone will build it and someone will buy it.
