    And looking at MM guitars, I agree with you, those are ugly headstocks. They look like a big wooden bottle opener.

    A lot of people dislike the prs headstocks and particularly the silver sky headstocks. I like them. But it just comes down to personal taste.

    I'd have to go with a SS. Unless I had a vision of the special guitar I'd want Mario to build. He has some nice ones in the collection.

    I like the prs and silver sky headstocks. The headstock and signature on it on the MMs just don't fit the guitars in my personal opinion. Most of the stuff they build are vintage correct specs and aesthetics, but the headstock is more reminiscent of hair metal guitars and kramers.

    It would basically just be a 64 strat spec and relic'd.
