    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!

    On page two of this forum (Luthier' Corner) ther is a thread entitled "Source for custom peghead decals". Try that.

    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.
