In a nutshell, I want to replace a logo on a headstock with a matte black finish with my own signature.

I have the decal of my signature ready and printed, I just need to know how to get rid of the logo and make it look as if it was never there.

Thanks!

Hi, I am looking for an amp setting close to the sound of bands like Black Veil Brides.

lightly.. and I do mean really lightly, rub it off with steel wool =]

the ink is just under one layer of varnish in most guitars

It all depends on if you want to half-ass it, or make it (your new decal) look like a factory finish? Half-ass is easy but looks like a two year old slapped a sticker on their headstock. 'Factory' isn't hard, but requires a clue, patience, and the ability to competently remove (and re-install) the tuning machines and/or string retainers plus a few bucks for poly or nitro in a rattle can and some wet/dry sandpaper. Also, neck removal isn't necessary - but recommended just so the risk of screwing up anything else is minimized.

Where can I acquire polyurethane or nitro in a spray can? Does Home Depot stock it or would I have to go to a specialized website like stewmac?
