Okay before continuing I would like to note that I am not replacing a Squier Logo with a Fender one.

My plans are to build a new Strat. I have a small problem. The neck I am about to buy has a blank headstock. How do I go about placing a Fender American Standard Strat logo in there? (It is a replacement neck for a MIA Standard Strat.)

Would the people at Warmoth install it or would I have to do so myself? If so what do I do?

Thanks,

Its probably illegal for them to sell a neck with a fender logo on it.

I dono, maybe make a good stencil and spray it on..? Or are you thinking more like an inlay? I think that would be pretty difficult to make. Why does it need a logo anyway..?

could always go to a graphic design studio and ask someone to make a vinyl decal for you
or make your own logo to make it unique

I second the idea of making your own logo, that would be badass.

You can do this, but I'd leave the headstock blank, it gives it a more personal feel to the guitar. Otherwise, you can make your own logo like others suggested.

Warmoth wont put any kind of logo from another company on their products including fender logos.Why does it need a Fender logo anyway?

It's illegal to put proper decals on. Fender is the only company that can put Fender logos on or in theory sell Fender logos - but they won't do it, they themselves tell you to go to Warmoth for any replacement parts and Warmoth won't do logos.

The best you could do is make your own copy of the logo using a fine-detail, very high-quality laser printer and some thin perspex or similar. You could then stick that on the headstock and finish over it - obviously, this requires finishing the neck yourself which can be very hard.

Of course, you could buy a genuine Fender neck off eBay or similar. A lot of people sell genuine Fender bodies and necks there, so if you're not going to be using Warmoth's customs options and you just want a direct Fender replacement neck, doing that is often a better way.

You know it's a fender so why do you need to have a logo placed on it to confirm this? Make a cool graphic and get vynil decal of it.

I hate the look of a blank headstock, plus I don't like making custom logo's. I want to be able to say "Hey, look at my kickass Fender American Strat."

You're going through Warmoth right? If the guitar is built by Warmoth then it isn't a Fender,and putting a Fender logo on it wont change that.Stop being shallow and throw a Warmoth logo on the headstock.Any guitarist worth their salt will see that logo and know you're playing a damn fine instrument.

Its not a full Warmoth guitar. Its a complete MIA Standard Strat, apart from the neck I might buy. I do like the ****er idea, though I don't think my girlfriend would like that one.

Just buy an American strat neck.You can get the neck from a brand new american deluxe off Ebay in mint condition for around the same price as a Warmoth neck.It solves all your problems,though I'd personally take a Warmoth neck over a Fender neck.

American deluxe neck w/ tuners

Fender "restoration" decals are fairly common (just google Fender decal). Since Warmoth is licensed to sell the Fender headstock shape I hardly think Fender cares legally if you stick a Fender logo on it as long as you're not trying to sell it as an original. The question is since you're Planning on paying for a quality neck and this seems so important to you, why not just buy the real thing and be done with it?

Yes. If she's asinine enough to get upset because your guitar says Fucker then you need to get back on the market. Unless she's really. hot. That'd make your guitar neither form of a lie and would be hilarious, rather than shallow. If you're in a situation where it's inappropriate, say playing a show at your school, put a piece of masking tape over it.

Two options that I can see:

Buy a used MiA neck

or

A Might Mite neck. They have the Fender logo on, even though it says licensed by MM etc etc etc.

I second this. Don't be a puuusseeehhh.

But seriously. You'd kinda be a douche for putting that logo on there. If you tried to sell it, it could be considered ripping people off. Unless you assume you are at the exact same quality as an out of the factory MIA Strat.

Just like it's her body, her decision; it's your guitar, your decision, if she doesn't like it, she can pound walnuts up her ass. If she tries giving you drama over it, blow up in her face, tell her, "Piss off, I'll write whatever the hell I like on my guitar." A well timed emotional outburst can help people keep perspective on what they're whining about.

This.

Anyways, from 10 feet away it'll just look like it says Fender. What makes it funny is that it takes a double take to notice what it says.

Also, it doesn't matter how attractive someone is, no amount of hot makes up for stupid.

don't write fender on it. that makes you look like you're a wannabe fender owner, even if you do own a real strat. Put like your name or something on it.

Screw the '****er' idea. Write 'Bender' instead. In the Fender font it'll look much closer. Paint the guitar's body in flip-flop blue/pink.

None of you can deny that would be an incredible sight.

it wouldn't look closer to fender. The "f" is what stands out in the fender logo. Replacing it with a "b" will be more obvious.

Well 1) not in the Fender font it doesn't, and 2) you missed the point.

Woah, that little tutorial is great! I'm probably going to do that to the fender neck that I'm buying. Either that, or I'm going to use a vinyl plotter to cut my logo out... That way I don't have to sand my finished birdseye maple neck down. Adhesive vinyl sticks to just about anything, but it usually sells in 20+ foot rolls and is a little impractical unless your parents own an advertising business like mine do.

You could always put something different on the headstock, like:

"FTW!"
