This is one of the reasons why i'm not getting an ibanez. Jackson and esp headstocks look much better.

Also i don't like how point the body is on the RG's. The Dinky and the M-II body looks better.

I think they look awesome. I always thought the Jackson headstock looked like a hockey stick.

I like Ibanez headstocks, but I think I like Jackson and ESP better. They just look more.....metal.

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

I know what you mean, i dont mind them but they just look kinda werid to me on a superstrat, almost like they are too big, imo the hockey stick headstocks are best, especially the original kramer ones

I agree they arnt particulurly exciting, but they are still ok, and dont need to be exciting.

I dont like ESP headstocks. To square.

That would be a sick paint job to do

If you don't like the points, LEAVE.

But really, Ibanez has way more than the RG

And the headstocks are beautiful.

ibanez have loads of different headstock designs. i don't have a problem with any of them.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I think Ibanez headstocks look great. Another thing I like about Ibanez is that they always (most of the time) match the colour of the headstock to the body. I hate when a guitar isn't matching it's headstock.

I love Ibanez headstocks as much as my ESP and Jackson headstocks.
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!

Somewhat off topic but if you knock Ibanez because the RG series is too "pointy" then look at the S series... there are few guitars that emit more sex appeal than an S.
