    I prefer the smaller ones on a traditional Strat. However, on a reverse headstock guitar with the tuners on the bottom, the large one looks best. That's a weird quirk to throw in there, but if you're going reverse, the large headstock looks killer.

    Someone mentioned this before but i will repeat it.....
    Small head stock=traditional blues or country
    Big head stock=Rock

    Leo never intended for his head stock to be enlarged. It was the brainchild of CBS after the buy of the company. If you like the large design that’s fine but that’s just personal preference. Like I posted earlier I have a 75’ Starcaster and it’s no wonder it only lasted for a short period of time. Can’t image why people are willing to pay the outrageous price of that guitar it will stay under the bed forever. Long live the ES 335.
