Any ideas? Graphite neck.
Depending on the logo, you could just sand it off, then finish the headstock again. Which brand?
i've never once seen that look like anything other than a headstock with a sanded-off logo (unless the whole thing was refinished).
+1. Unless you do a refin on the headstock it will look like crap.
Why what is wrong with it? Is it cheap and you want to pass it off as expensive?
Get chizzle and hammer on him.
Cover it with carefully color-coordinated duct tape?
It's a Status.
isn't status a fancy brand? if it was SX i might understand.
Wow I'm in the same boat. I asked if I could get my neck without a logo. The answer was a polite NO. I love the neck but hate the logo. My solution was to get it profesionally refinished to match my surf green body. A Fender Jazz bass logo will be used instead.
...Isn't the point of spending upwards of $600 on a Status Graphite neck to get a Status Graphite neck?
To each his own, but I sure as heck wouldn't sand anything on the neck. As I understand the carbon fiber fabric is only a very thin skin on the foam core of the neck anyway. Wouldn't want to cut through it on accident.
+1 on coating it with a shell color and applying the logo of your choice, if any at all. Actually, that would be pretty cool if you get it done right.
Scrape it off with a very sharp blade or a piece of glass, you will get a good finish if you are patient. That's how I did one, I didn't have to refinish afterwards, the decal was on top of the finish. Don't push towards the edge but scrape with a nearly vertical edge.
electrical tape covering it?
Perfect opportunity for very expensive chainsaw art!
acetone works wonderful.
With acetone or any strong solvent, it's a good idea to try a TINY test spot somewhere unobtrusive first. You could end up removing more than the decal - if that's what it is.
I'd contact the manufacturer and ask them what carefully applied solvent will safely remove it.
If they can't help, get on the web and find out about the basic chemistry of carbon fiber necks and solvents. It can't be that hard.
BEST ANSWER YET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't think the manufacturer wants his decal removed
IMHO, I wouldn't care about that.
