    I know, I know...why not just get a "real Squier"?

    Sure, Fender owns Squier, but is it as ethically wrong as putting a Fender decal on a Squier?

    I would do it as social experiment, to see how many corksniffers wouldn't approve of the tone because it wasn't the real deal.

    I could use an Ibanez truss rod cover for my old Rick ...

    Then, to make it really cool, put the Fender logo on the Squier, and take it as your backup!! Then when people ask to borrow your bass they will be thrilled to be handed the Fender!

    (Not to mention how many people will assume your crazy!!)

    You can put whatever sticker you want on any bass you own. You bought and paid for it... it's yours to do with as you wish. You can put a Nike sticker on a Rickenbacker if you want, paint it pink with purple polkadots and dip the headstock in metalflake gold.
    As long as you are not doing it for fraudulent purposes I say go for it! :D

    I put a Kodak Instamatic logo on my Nikon digital SLR and it suddenly uses flash cubes and film...

    I put a Fender logo on my SVT, and an Ampeg logo on my pbass, and for some reason 99% of talkbass thought it was ok:D

    There's nothing ethically wrong. Besides,
    no one will even notice what bass you
    are playing, let alone what may be on
    the headstock?

    The only ones that notice are opinionated
    musicians, if they get close enough. Who
    gives a hoot?

    Only other bass players care (or not). Do what you want!

    I recommend you find one that's misspelled as Squire.

    I'd even say it's a bit 'bassist' I'll get my coat :p

    I say go for it, whatever floats your boat!

    I have a favorite Jazz neck that's a 17yr old Squier part,and it's been on almost all of my basses,be they MIA,MIJ,MIM,etc..and as luck would have it,I just got a new(to me)bass that I pulled the MIA neck from and replaced it with an unused Squier VM Jag neck because it looks killer IMO. It's also a Reggie Hamilton active P/J converted to a passive J/J...guess I'm a pot stirrer too ;)

    An Epiphone decal would really be better.
