Is the Ernie Ball headstock available as a custom order, or has it been scrubbed altogether?
Sorry if this has been discussed before.

Also, can W make a straight head version of the Warmoth shape, again, as a custom order?

Nah.  You can run in to mechanical problems with string pull if you take the Warmoth tiltback and put it on a straight headstock.  You'd see similar issues if you tried to make a straight LP, etc.....

There is a Warmoth straight headstock though.  Go take a look at Gregg's 7/8 strat.

Do you mean the strings not breaking over the nut? If that's what you're referring to, staggered tuners or a string retainer bar ala Floyd Rose would solve that.

String pull would not be straight and, yes, could be solved by a bar retainer.  However, ownership is not keen on taking tiltback headstock designs and trying to make straight headstocks.

String pull would not be straight

And yet the KWS design proliferates. Not exactly straight string pull on that one either. Oh well.

Just wanted to clarify I wasn't trying to "get" anyone. I just find the logic inconsistent.
