Bing,

What's to stop you? You could be the first. No one but the geeks, freaks and other assorted misfits that frequent these forums would know the difference. (unless it's a part of some secret handshake thingy I don't know about) :blink:

Ron
But, I would feel so.... dishonest.   :P

I think I'll leave well enough alone.  The Larrivee headstock looks pretty good like it is.

I forget where I saw it (I think the old Taylor forum), but someone did an inlay of Kermit the Frog on his truss rod cover. Kermit is my favorite (I have a huge collection). I thought it was really cool!

Taylor's headstock is pretty nice.  I'm surprised it hasn't been copied.  It's interesting because the first thing I look at in a guitar (that's ok TV or on stage) is the headstock.  I think it ought to be one of the more distinctive features.

Larrivee's headstock, with the stainless steel and pearl inlay, is the classiest by far.  Elegant, not too simple, definitely NOT martin...

I wonder what it'll look like with mini tuners...just wondering

That's the one! But none of my guitars have truss rod covers <sigh>

You don't actually have to "need" a TRC to use one...  We have a Taylor Big Baby, that has no "need" for a TRC. It is adjusted from inside the guitar like Larrivee and Martin.
BUT..... We have a TRC on the headstock..
I just cut off the heads of 2 screws, and glued the screw heads into the holes in the TRC, and attached the TRC with 2 sided sticky tape..(the vinyl stuff that is used to hold down carpet, is thin and works well... and is cheap.. ;)
 Now, go get a Kermit.....

I think my parlor needs one. My desk at work is "the Kermit Zone." I could probably order one without the screw holes.

Come on now, we all know Blueridge makes the ugliest HS.

Best? I like Bourgeois' snake head or Collings "hair-part" that they use on their Gibsonesque models.

Ooh, I like that one too, especially on this model:

One of the hardest for me to warm up to are the old
Eepiphone metal cover plate units. They were sort of an art deco kelvinator look. Good guitars but that headstock looked like it came from a flash gordon movie.
