отогнутая назад головка

о лютне и похожих на нее инструментах

Лютня имеет короткий гриф и отогнутую назад головку, на которой расположены колки для настройки струн.

кобза -- струнный щипковый инструмент с корпусом, похожим на корпус лютни, и с небольшим, слегка отогнутым назад грифом.

Мне кажется, в любом случае нужно добавить "современный": например, "современная форма" головки, т. к. это она.
