Another day, another poseur.

Yeah, you can sand off the Squier logo, and you can buy Fender waterslide decals over the internet.

The logo is a waterslide decal under the clear coat. You need to get through the coating first, then through the decal.

Are you remodding it with a Fender neck, Fender body, and Fender hardware?

Because anything less, and you are just putting a Fender logo on a Squier.

Please don't sell it on Ebay as a Fender or I'll hunt you down I hate when people do that

Then what's the ****ing point in making it say "Fender" on the bloody head?

Much more in keeping with a true custom to put something original on there.

Now see, that's where you're supposed to come up with a witty reason that makes you not a moronic poseur for wanting to put "Fender" on a non-Fender guitar.

Well, if you don't understand why it's more taboo to put a Fender logo on a non-Fender guitar...

It's really just a matter of taste.

But if you worry about what the headstock says, is it just because you're afraid to gig a Squier?
#18
no way man. i played that guitar over a year live. i love it. yes, i love a squire. to be fair, i think i got a really good one. i own 5 guitars now and ive always had my "dream strat" if you will. my dream strat would be made by fender. I'm not putting a fender logo on it because i want people to think im cool, or that i'm embarassed of my squire. The idea was to kind of make my own custom fender headstock. it would include a straight black fender logo, and thats it. no "stratocaster" or anything else on it. its my first gutiar modding project.

So your reason for putting "FENDER" on the headstock is really because you feel like it? That's not that great a reason.

EDIT: What are your other two guitars? You said you have 5, but your sig only names three.


By the way, why don't you just swap the necks with your Tom Delonge strat, then put a peice of masking tape over the "Tom Delonge"?

Fender_punk, don't be such a pussy. Just take the logo off and illegally put a Fender decal on there.

We're telling you that legitimate players, modders and luthiers will look down on you for lying like that. Who knows, maybe putting "Fender" on the headstock will get you some 14 year old pop-punk poontang.

i think all squires should be sent to another planet.



Squier, not squier.

I think their non strat copies are fantastic guitars, like the '51 and sorts. I like the ones that Traffic used as well.

Agreed! The clearcoat makes it look uniform even if you just "spot" sand like I did on an inexpensive Johnson neck that I used for a project. Before:
