Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    What tools are used to make those names and logo's on the headstock?

    My guess is that they use a tool that burns away the wood and then ink it?

    some help would be awsome

    thank you!

    9 times out of 10, it's just a decal. They make a pretty cool "paper" for inkjet printers that let's you print out your own decals. You can usually find the stuff on eBay, and it's rather cheap.
