I like them mostly because of Hendrix's Black Beauty.

I don’t like anything on a strat, except maybe magma.
But at least a giant headstock increases its chances of being struck a meteor or flying debris. So I’m a fan

I didn't have a preference until I got a Robin Trower Strat on a trade, with the bigger headstock. I took a liking to it, and didn't think it looked too out of proportion.

Beyond a critical point within a finite space, freedom diminishes as numbers increase. This is as true of humans as it is of gas molecules in a sealed flask. The human question is not how many can possibly survive within the system, but what kind of existence is possible for those who so survive.

It’s not that I haven’t tried to stop, giving up drinking has helped a lot, I’m way less offensive now.
