does a reverse neck actually do anything for tone or is it just for show or something?

It's not a reverse neck, usually the headstock is upside down compared to the original design. 100% for cosmetic reasons, for example I think the pointy Jackson headstocks look pretty cool upside down (they look sweet normally too).

Yep, just for looks. I was told reverse headstocks were better for down tuning because there was more tension or something. But thats not true

I think they look realy awkward when your turning the pegs

i thought the reverse headstocks gave reverse tension to the strings. so instead of the thinnest string feeling tighter it feels looser while keeping the same notes. or at least thats what i heard.


ive also wondered if that same thing transfer over when you lock the nut on a FR. but apparently it doesnt actually do anything?
