Hi guys and gals.
I pretty much have everything I need for the Strat style build. The only things I am missing are a set of 10 gauge strings, pickguard screws and........something for the headstock.
I really don't want to put Fender Stratocaster on the headstock, as that's not cricket in my book. Having said that I do like the look of the 50's style Fender font. The guitar is going to be a vintage strat inspired guitar (aesthetically, akin to a 59) but with subtle modern upgrades (locking tuners etc).
Anyway I'm at a cross roads with what to apply onto the headstock. Two main trains of thought at the moment
- A 50s fender style decal, anything considered that doesn't read as Fender. Thought of "Forgery Stratamocaster", "Fecker etc", "Feeder fakecaster" (or even caketaster).
- An old 50s style logo. Something like this (shame this is too big )
Just don't want a 50s pinup, that idea seems to have been done to death. Suggestions welcome The guitar is going to be White blonde trans with tort guard.
I would love to change my username, but I fully understand the T&C's (it was an old band nickname). So please feel free to call me Dave.
