Do you guys think that the headstocks have been modified, maybe shrunk thru the decades?
I was looking at some custom shop series from the 80s, and they kinda look bigger than what I have on my gears. Any thoughts?

Them china knock-off guys use a photo and it doesn't scale right so it gets smaller or bigger......:doh:


:icon_bigg I think they would change stuff - really nothing ever stays the same, marketing guys have to justify their existence...they make small changes..."for the better" :eusa_whis

2005 DK6 (Christian Olde Wolbers Signature) meets 1987 Soloist. I know their just "plain Jane" Jacksons :eusa_shhh, not Custom Shop girlies, but they are from two different decades. :icon_cool
