Squier tele, want to remove the squier. Possible or am I just stupid? And If not possible are the necks just like on the strats where they're bolted on?
#2
The logo is going to be under the finish, so removal is going to mean refinishing the headstock. Seems a bit pointless really.

Yes, tele necks are bolt on. There are some nice replacement Tele necks about (I've just bought one for a guitar that I'm putting together), I've just changed the neck on my Squier Strat, with the old neck, it was never that bad, but the new neck just makes the whole guitar something special.

Well, it's not so much I want to put "Fender" on it, so much as I want to make it MY tele not a squier tele. I'm gonna switch out some pick ups (as soon as I start working) with better pups and put strap locks on it, and I'll make it my main guitar. Where do you think they sell necks that are blank that I can put what I want on it?

Any ideas?

[Thanks for the info btw]

Well, if you want to do something with it, rather than just make it blank (which is what I thought you meant) then sand it down, make a decal, use a sharpie, paint it the same colour as the body or whatever, and then clear coat over the top to protect it.

I've bought necks from E-bay - I'd recommend a Fender licensed neck, rather than some no name copy, as you'll have less problems getting it to fit nice.

If your neck is good already, I'd just go down the sanding the headstock and refinishing route to be honest.

Well I want a neck that is blank, so I can put my own name on it like the "Nanocaster" or the "Millicaster"

or something of the sort. Y'know? Just Something that sounds cool, but is not tele or strato.

I'm gonna look through e-bay in that case, and if I don't I'm gonna refinish the head stock.

FYI: I have a gibson sg. So I could care less what people think of my guitar. I just want it more personal and I don't want to ruin my expensive guitar by getting rid of the Gibson logo I figure If i do it with the cheap one, no harm no foul if i **** up too bad.

The bolt necks carvin sells dont drop in a strat neck pocket. I have one and its to wide so has to be sanded to fit. The tele and strat neck pockets are different so a carvin wont work with out mods anyways. Warmoth details the differences on their site.

I did this to my squire strat

You need an exacto knife, some type of oil or pledge and a lot of patience,
This will take about 20 minutes

Only scratch very lightly where the logo is first you have to use the blade at an angle then the light finish will come off then the logo will peel of as you scratch away stop then oil it or use pledge and it will look almost like it never said squire and you canonly tell if you are really close and under bright light

There is finish under the logo as well

or you could sand the face of the headstock and tape up the rest of your neck. Then draw your name or whatever you want and finish with some laquer

Is this the same with their bass necks as well? Because I was thinking of doing some work on my bass and putting a new neck on it, and it's a Squier.

Carvin does not do things to fender specs, Warmoth does. Good?

And, to remove the logo, get some sandpaper and go to town. Some 220 should be good, or even 180. That is getting pretty rough though.

Follow this tutorial for putting on a new decal.

You have a Gibson SG, but you want to take the Squier logo off of your SQUIER tele and then make it your main guitar?

Squiers can be modded to far surpass the quality of a Gibson.

But just by changing his pickups, while continuing to use his Squier neck?

Can be. Can.

Squier necks aren't necessarily bad. It might play incredibly well.

The thing about quality control is that it's just hit and miss.
