@russ I like to use the staggered ones

Thanks @boo. Would I need staggered ones if I opted for a 4-2 setup?

@russ I would say no, use shorter posts for all six. Either angle the headstock or if you are going with a parallel headstock design, use a string guide bar. Whichever one you use, I think the shorter posts would suit it, I love the low profile appearance and you can make the headstock slightly thinner as well if you wanted to.
