Hello all,
Can anyone tell me if they have seen this type of headstock (coke bottle?) before? I've searched on line but have only found the standard looking solid headstock.
Thanks,
Jim

Thanks for the reply. Do you know what the reason was for this headstock design? Are there many of this style out there?
Thanks,
Jew

Not sure about why the headstock design was changed...my guess is that Regal wanted a non slotted headstock for ease of changing strings. I've seen quite a number of these around. Wonderful guitars !
