You’re just a sore loser.

I love me some large headstock action. Black strat maple neck large headstock, suits me sir.
So, is that low alcohol or no alcohol at all? mmmm, no alcohol, do you want to try it? Noooooooooo.

Apart from being able to fit a bigger logo on, is there any actual point to having a larger headstock?

That was pretty much the reason for them. The black script shows up better on TV too.
I've always liked them. My formative guitar years were the early 90s. I liked 'vintage' guitars back then and had no money so big headstock Fenders were the closest I could afford to get to 'old'. Cheap then!

Big black garbage bag full of original Klon Centaurs and TS808s.

Robin Trower says it means more tone. Can't say I'm a fan of his though.

James Tyler must think the same.

I dislike large headstocks, modern bridges and modern tuners on strats.
