Do you have any pictures of the TL60 with that SB (later named something like the "classic" headstock after Sekou left)? I don't know that I've seen that before.

I don't know, I never liked that headstock on guitars, Compared to the same headstock on basses, it's more angled, which for some reason doesn't work for me. I like it more on PB and JB bases than guitars.

For me, the 2 best headstocks forthe solo is the standard inline, maybe the reverse version, and the CT.

People may scoff at a 3+3 CT on a tele-style, but I think it works well.

I really like the reverse version for the solo. I think the 3+3 CT version works well because it's narrow. Not sure if a wide, traditional would fit as well. Seems a little out of place?

Here is one with SB headstock.

I have seen more in-stock, but can't find them via google search. I'm sure they are buried in the in-stock archive.

And I just made a MSpaint mockup of a Solo, using the walnut headstock from that walnut TL60.

I'm still haven't seen one, because those are TLB60, not the TL60 you mentioned above. ;) :rockon:

That.

Is.

AWESOME.

I bet it wasn't 2300 bucks or something ridiculous either, and I like the 3+3 Kiesel headstock far better than the goofy-looking reverse PRS one.

I'm kinda digging that racing orange Zeus posted a few pictures back. Normally that is not one of the colors I like, especially in gloss.

Usually I like the bigging up the Zeus body to get the thing to fill out the proportions a little better and put the hump against a more reasonable background, but hoofa, that limba combo 6 string bass.. not a huge fan. And I'm limba guy supremo.
