Overlay? Do you mean a vaneer (thin peice of wood), or a decal(logo, model name)?

You may have to saw out your current guitar headstock too.

Plus fake Gibsons are just retarded. No shame in having a copy.

Glue...clamps...time.

And you're not going to fool anybody by trying to trick people into thinking you have a Gibson when you've got an Epiphone, or ****ty Agile.

He could just sand off the squier decal, and put a fender decal on it, They should be loads cheaper.

For a fender style one you would need to sand the decal off, stick a new one on and spray a few coats of laquer.

It's totally different to putting on the one you posted. Don't be an ass to people trying to help.

Side note: Those overlays wouldn't fit on a epiphone as they have different shaped headstocks.

1st thing, inlays are the mother-ofpearl things in the headstock that look like Fret Markers, but in kickass designs, like a red Mother of Pearl flame thing. Logos re nifty words and shapes that are either painted or glued on.

I once saw this cool bit on Project Guitar about logos(Cant find the link, anyone help me?), basically you print the colored lineart of your logo (at a print shop with a high quality printer) backwards on a transpartent sheet. Color it in extremely carefully. Than glue it in right side up (so the ink is on the inside) and put finish on it.

I even tried dressing up as a fly myself, and throwing myself out of the window in the hope that they will follow me. But to no avail.

I know, infact it does look quite cool I can imagie, but I mean unless you have mastered the fine art of the mighty Dremel, than it would take a VERY long time, and LOTS of money...
