Favourite Epiphone headstock?

Recommended Posts

As the title suggests, what is your favourite Epiphone headstock?

 

Mine is the archtop body type... especially the early sheraton and elitist sheraton ones!

The early Sheratons (before 1963) featured a shorter, more Gibson-like headstock shape. The earliest ones ('58 to '60 or '61) had the old thick "Epiphone" script logo, like this:

In '61 or '62, they were still shorter in length, but the script was streamlined (this is my favorite):

Then in '63, they went to the familiar shape that lasted until '69:

This just became my new favorite headstock. Certainly the nicest Epi one I own. '05 Zephyr Blues Deluxe.
