Advantages and disadvantages of each? I tried attaching between the tuners and nut for the first time, and I like it; seems to hold the guitar steadier. But I went on YouTube and did a quick survey of the pickers on “The Greatest Bluegrass Flatpickers”, parts 1-3, and almost nobody attaches to the headstock (notable exception: Norman Blake). Why is that? On the other hand, almost all my honky tonk heros, like Lefty Frizzel, Hank Williams, Hank Snow, Skeets McDonald, and Webb Pierce, attached at the headstock (Ernest Tubb did when he was younger, but didn’t later). Why? Is that because it was an “older” style? Or something about strumming vs. picking?
BTW, I did a search of this topic before posting, and couldn’t find anything. Many thanks!
