Head stock shape

We are fortunate to count Paul Gagon as a member here, so it seemed natural to give him a home to stretch out in and relax a little. Maybe exercise the grey matter and present a little history of the guitar and bass (amps too!) from his perspective as one of the eminent designers of our time.

Got questions? Great! Good questions might be, "What are the EQ mappings for the M Series preamps?" Or, "What was the thought process behind the MJ-4?" Troubleshooting questions should remain in the regular forums (he reads those too). Finally, please be mindful of how I feel about tech questions via PM or email.

Head stock shape

Hello everyone,

I hope this hasn't been answered a long time ago and I didn't look properly enough...

What defines the different shape of the standard G&L headstock (with the pointy bit) with different models e. g. the telly character of the ASAT or the shifted look of the trib L2000 (as if knocked over). The difference is quite subtle between most of the models but looks intentional, the trip L2K really stands out(a bit like a mistake in design or production). I understand all necks are cnc routed, no hand carving involved here, right.
