Peghead

Although this is word is sometimes used interchangeably with the term “headstock” (mainly in the acoustic guitar world), it is more commonly used on stringed instruments such as the violin, cello, and dulcimer. These instruments use wooden tuners that are actually wooden pegs inserted into the wood at the end of the instrument’s neck and fingerboard. These are normally held in place by friction. The ends are slightly tapered so that they may be easily turned while tuning and then pushed deeper into the wood to lock them in place.
