Here's the headstock on my Probett Rocket III electric guitar. The guitar is sort of a cross between a Strat, a Telecaster and a Les Paul. Built buy a small shop in England.

The Trujo company in San Francisco made some of the weirdest (if not hideous) pegheads. They were built by Gibson to Trujo specs. I once owned a Trujo plectrum. Super loud and brashy.

I'd put the emphasis on hideous. "Weirdest" should be parenthetical.

"Grotesque" is another word that could be applied.

well since it has nothing to do with Disney I am not worried LOL it is actually a peg head that I discovered while looking on line by a European builder, i sat and carved it out because i liked it and decided to use it on a gourd banjo but you are correct it does look a lot like that witch character now that you brought it up good thing i did not bring the points together LOL

and actually that witch charter's head and head piece would be cool to carve out for a peg head
