How do I remove the logo of my squier standard strat from the headstock without making it look horrible? Would sandpaper do?

Cause I want to, and cause I'm sick of people bagging my guitar cause it's a squier, it's a great guitar, and also I like the whole mysterious look of a headstock with no logo... By the way, I think the finish of the neck and the headstock is polyutherane... I'm not 100% sure

of course sandpaper will work, good luck getting it to look decent though, you'll have to sand it really well (for a long time) if its polyurethane, and then you'll have to refinish the headstock if you want it to match, and that will also be hard

If you do it though, you could actually put a custom made logo on the headstock then

interesting idea, once the logo is gone, get a fender logo and put it on. See if the same people think its still crap

or you could go the cheaper route and just not care what other people say. A lot of people bash gibson's faded series, but I love mine, haha I dont care.

But yea if you do use sandpaper, you can probably make it look decent if you sand it down... You could also remove all the tuners, and sand it down and paint the entire headstock black or something

Sandpaper, work your way up to 600 grit from about 120 grit. Then you'll need to refinish the front of the headstock.

Seems pretty simple actually. Its more or less like making a temporary skin tattoo. Would require a lot of sanding though since you already have a logo.

Might not be hard to do, but might be hard to make it look professional.

Well if Squier made you a great guitar then I think it's a little ungrateful to take away their logo and not give them credit for it. They have a bad reputation as it is, and it's not that well deserved either in my opinion. I had a Squier 7-string that I loved, and I know people who've got Squiers around $500-600 that are much nicer than Fneders for the same price.

I actually just did this, wierd...

I just sanded down the front of the headstock, painted the front (put painter's tape on the sides/ neck) and then clearcoated it. Worked great.
