I get your point, however even if you store your gasoline properly in a flammables cabinet elsewhere, paper is still combustible and subject to ignition from careless practices. On a guitar, or anything else for that matter, there is always a weak link that will be the first thing to fail. Properly handled a Gibson will hold together for many decades. Don't bang it around and it won't break. Maybe a Gibson headstock is weaker than some others, but mine aren't just "popping off" for no reason either. Take care of it, or buy something else. I suppose if you simply must have a Gibson that is "better engineered", one could buy one that needs a neck anyways and solve the problem at the source. Why not use aluminum? titanium? Every solution that would solve the problem will have tradeoffs that may also be unacceptable to some. Hell, they added a "volute" for more strength, people complained to no end (and still do). People also still broke them from time to time.
