Headstock Question

Postby Calxplorer » Thu Jul 13, 2017 4:59 pm

Reverse or standard on a Jackson with locking nut? Looking for opinions and suggestions, open to all points of view just want solid feedback on look, tone and quality of the reverse models. Very concerned with the tone being affected and the tension of the strings being altered, regardless of locking nut. This will be my first locking nut and fLoyd rose. Have been a solid Gibson standard bridge and tailpiece player for years. Just recently acquired Exploer and am getting used to shorter scale neck over V I've utilized for 5 plus years. Like I says any comments welcomed!! :D

I have a few with reverse headstock and there is no issue with tone or tension, it's purely a look thing.

I will say tuning them is a little different, just the feel of it and the motion due to the different location. Not a deal breaker by any means.

i've got regular and reverse headstocks on locking trem guitars (floyds and ibby edges and zrs) and i have never noticed any difference in tone or string tension. about the only time it enters my mind is when i'm string the guitar.

No difference IMO.
