Here's the one I keep clicking on:
Looking at that headstock makes me wonder why does this type of guitar usually have that shape? It can't surely be good to have strings kink that way at the nut, or does it work like a locking nut on an electric?
"Are you sure Martin done it this way?"
Hardly a kink.
It is necessary to provide downward pressure to transmit the vibration (sound), and to keep the strings in the nut slots, which should be fairly shallow (most factory guitars have nut slots rhat are much too deep).
Both of the Martins that I have owned were built this way.
In fact just about every guitar that I have owned or even seen is built this way.
What he said....American SPirit is to.
