Which is the large Fender headstock and which is the large CBS headstock?
Can you see the differences?

I'm thinking the middle one with the 65 transition logo is the CBS and the right side is Fender.

Is this a trick question? My guess is they're both pre-CBS.

It is very easy
Three heads and obviously the one to the left is not a big head.

Fender have had two big head versions and they are both present here.
The first is pre-CBS, 1958-1965 and the other is CBS 1966 onwards.

Then wouldn't that make japaxe's reply correct?
