The similarity you see in the headstock design is a result of the fact that Greg Rich, the American designer who designed the Blueridge guitars, now works for Music Link, and his styling is certainly reflected in the headstocks of Loar and Carolina guitars ... maybe toned down just a touch. Keep in mind that wood carving and engraving have been masterfully done in the orient for hundreds of years ...

I believe that Greg Rich somehow got control of the "Loar" name back when he was working at Gibson in the banjo department. Apparently Gibson wasn't interested at the time, so Rich trademarked it. He is either directly involved in the production of "The Loar" mandolins, or if not, that they are being made under his license.
Greg also got control of the "Recording King" name, again which may have been because Gibson wasn't interested in it. He's done very nice things with the Recording King line of banjos and guitars (the latter of which I've seen Big Joe Vest speak very highly).
Whether he did anything "underhanded" or not, I can't say. Greg doesn't seem to be a member here, although he does post frequently over at banjohangout.org.
