Just got this in the mail, came from asia somewhere. The ad said Fender, but it says something else on the headstock. Does anyone know where to buy fender decals to fix this? Or should i just sand out some of it so it looks more like "fender"?

Here's a photo:

Wait so you paid for something you thought was a Fender and then received something else? And you're worried about merely changing the headstock?

I see what you did there.

LOL, Is it a nice guitar? If so who cares, keep it as a fender rip off.
Trying to make a fake guitar MORE like a rip off by trying the logo just makes you a douche.

That's a Fernandes, pretty well known company. I'm not familiar with them so I can't tell you if it's a decent company or what.

its a fernandes ... do you know if its old . ?? just they used to make very good fender copies in the 80's /90's as i recall .

this one could be a "lawsuit" model cause they stopped making them

Billie Joe "blue" guitar ( his most famous guitar .. is a fernandes strat . ) the headstock is exactly like a Fender strat ( hence the "lawsuit" )

do some more search fernandes have make great guitar .. like tokai etc..

Lawsuit fernandes were often said to be Just as good as Gibsons and Fenders in quality... its a japanese company and the guy that was behind the builds was a Master Luthier... they say he was one of the best in his day ... that was the 60's and 70's i believe ... but of course this is all just opinions that i've read in articles and such over the years (i own a fernandes)

The headstock you have is kinda weird . it would be the 70's Fernandes logo .. But your is way to recent to be an orgiinal 70's fernandes .. Fernandes were copy of fender . who would copy a copy ??

i guess thats what happen for your guitar .. took the old fernandes logo to boost the price knowing they were good fender copy back in the days .


they got a lawsuit and switch the headstock shape .

Fernandes was a good company .. so maybe someone built a fake fernandes selling it as the "best fender copy available "

it would bring less suspicion .

a fake TOKAI disguise as the best Gibson imitation out there would probably fool someone easier than " a real Gibson form china for 300 $ .

So my guess is you have a fake fernandes . ive been around sinc ethe 90's and saw many fernandes but that wasnt fernandes logo . this is the old 70's fernandes logo , the first fender copy they made with the fender shape headstock and F logo the same as the Fender spaghetti logo from the 70's


so tell us ... did you bought it brand new ??.. if yes .. then its a fake . does the guitar , feel , look "OLD form the 70's " if not its a fake fernandes .

a fake TOKAI would be worth something .. so i imagine a china manufacturer making fake . cause these copies were so good that they have their value nowadays .

Lawsuits are what business professionals wear to work. What they're saying is that you need to dress fancy if you're going to play this guitar because it's so special. If you don't, you'll get fined by the Federal Clothing Commission, which has expanded from the US to cover all nations. Be careful out there.

What in the world makes you think that it is "way too recent to be an original '70s"?
