    With the new wave or comparison threads, I figured I'd post a PRS-topic one! (Probably a re-post)

    Pointy PRS headstock, or Santana/Ted/Acoustic-style PRS headstock???

    Personally, I super-dig the Santana headstock!

    I like both, but if it were me, I'd put the Sanata style on the more vintage inspired models, like the 594 SC. However, the Custom body shape just looks good with the pointy headstock.

    Hmmmmm.....

    On the Custom shape, pointy. I had a Ted DC, and while I was pumped for the headstock, when I got the guitar I wasn't digging it.

    However, I bet it would kill on a SC - especially if scaled down a hair...

    It depends on the guitar, for me. Not counting the Santana shaped bodies, I like pointy on DCs and Santana on SC.

    I wonder if this was tossed out as an option during the development of the Silver Sky?

    You forgot the reverse one on the SS...:rolleyes:

    I like the most used left point one. I'm used to the other one on the Santana but I like this one better.

    If I put on a hat, made that face, we could be brothers. Except I'd be wearing sweatpants.

    Pointy. One of the things that make PRS guitars unique.

    Dude! Is that a nice bright yellow McRosie?

    If you still have it, and ever want to move it, drop me a line...

    That would scratch so many itches...

    It's a 2010 WL SC Ted from Wilcutt, formerly owned by MAPete, loaded with 59/09s. I believe the color was Honey. You'll have to fight Sergio for it.
