Rockin’ (Design) Patent – Will-Chen-Zqui Design, LLC’s “Guitar Headstock”

Patents Rock - Guitar Headstock

Figure 1 of this design patent “is a front perspective view of the guitar headstock”

  • Rockin’ (Design) Patent: US Design Patent No. D759,152 S
  • Filed: 3 April 2015
  • In the name of: Will-Chen-Zqui Design, LLC
  • Title: Guitar Headstock
  • What’s claimed: “The ornamental design for a guitar headstock, as shown and described.”
  • Why this (design) patent rocks:
    • Unlike utility patents, design patents (also called “registered designs”) protect the way all or part of a product looks rather than how it works. This is why the claim here refers to the “ornamental design” for the guitar headstock “as shown”.
    • Note that this design patent focuses on the design the headstock (and part of the neck), rather than that of and entire guitar.
