Well, guitars always play better after they drink blood, so slotheads sound better because you will bleed more after restringing them.

Happy?

Re-stringing is, I'll admit, a bit of a pain...:

Restring (without putting in a few NEW scratches or dings) is a challenge to say the least.

Still, they look GREAT and everybody ought to have at least one!

technical and musical advantages to the slot head configuration

there are none that I know of.  Yes, they are a bit more challenging to re-string, not too much but a bit. 

And they do look awfully cool...

I have a Martin 000-16SRGT that has a slothead and open gear Waverly tuners.  It is pretty cool!!!
