    Jackson or any headstock that puts a significant pull on the nut slot.

    I don't really like Fender headstocks overall. Not a fan of how untilted headstocks look.

    Screw you Nic, I love the 08-09 Horizon headstocks :D

    But yeah, I can't stand:

    And I'm sure there are others, but those spring to mind! And Mago, that Ibanez headstock is so normal looking, how can you not like it? :lol:

    EDIT: Oh yeah, and this

    Ack, I can tolerate the regular Strat headstock because it's so iconic, but I can't stand the gondo ones, like on the Jim Root model:

    I'm sorry, but IMO that just looks ridiculous

    sharing the hate for the newer horizon headstocks, old one is so much better. I love the headstock on my fly deluxe :(
