    From this one...

    to this one...

    Thoughts? Suggestions? I'm considering buying another neck, just so I don't foul up this one...

    it's a decal. I can't see it when I'm playing.

    I'd change one letter though

  3. Myself.. I think that looks really cool. I would consider it if I knew how to do it so it would look good.

    If it is worth the effort to you then go for it, personally I can't see the point in all the work just for a decal.

    That's quite a lot of effort for the decal.

    I'd imagine you'd put in a lot of hours and then when you're done, you'll stand back, go "huh," and feel a bit silly.

    Sounds like a lot of time, effort and money for such a tiny change that only you will notice, but it's YOUR time, effort and money, so if you want to do it, go ahead.

    Yeah, seems silly to do all that for a minor change. Is that for a different model? Then if so, you shouldn't do it, no matter what. If you are getting a new neck why not come up with your own logo? Lots of great examples here.

    Your call, however it is just the decal...I personally wouldn't bother.

    Good Luck!
  9. I find these replies interesting...given the fact that some people (perhaps not those who replied) will replace a "Squier" decal for a "Fender" decal.

    I believe the OP just wants to personalize his bass,,the same as lots of us included who spend time and money modifying electronics..changing bridges/tuners/pickguards ETC.

  10. Sure, go for it! What you have planned looks to me like an "upgrade". Give it a shot! If it doesn't work out, it won't take a lot of work to change it to something else. Its just a headstock name, no biggie. :)

    I wouldnt do it... It seems like too much work just for a logo to me it doesnt matter whats on the headstock. I play what sounds good. I have owned squiers in the past but never hung on to them because I couldnt bond with the j bass tone. Id just play it as it is.

    It's nice to have something just a little bit different.
    Sometimes I think it'd be cool to have a mirror image decal.
