Cool Headstock Decal Site

Postby Hawaii 5-0 » Fri Jan 11, 2008 6:12 pm

In my quest to build a Bass VI, I came across a cool site that lets you design your own headstock decals.  I was planning on making up a model name for my Bass VI project, as to avoid the legal issues with making up a Fender one.  Check out www.best-decals.com  Go to the "Make your own Decal" section.

Looks like they do vinyl die-cut decals as opposed to waterslide decals.  Definitely cool for custom products, but wouldn't be my first choice for vintage-style.
I finally launched a new website. Go look it up, ya gear nuts.

I see they're back. They were down for a while, I assumed they got sued. I have used 2 of their products. I have their John-Mayer style racing stripe on one of my strats, and on my tele, I have their (oversized, almost completely accurate) fender logo on the headstock.

Here's a picture. That's with a couple coats of satin poly on top.

They cover all the bases I guess.

I also found some ebay sellers that offer waterslide decals, with metallic inks, in Fender styles.  I need to make up a cool fake guitar company name for my decal.

BTW: Vintagemojo have updated their assortment with Jaguar decals...and Mustang bass...mmmmm...

nearly complete line-up there - only the Jazzy transit decals that's missing now (and late 70's JM with serial number on headstock).
Someone knows where I can find the nearest woodchipper to throw my pieces of junk into?
