I HAVE been asked to make a Vista decal for a person who was restoring their guitar that had a Fender decal added to replace the Squier one. Not very often that I see a request for a Squier decal though.

I've used Fender logo's before because blank headstocks look garbage imo. I'd have had no problem with a Squier logo but they were never available (to my knowledge) and since the custom decals became widely available I've used those.

I've put Fender decals on a couple of my guitars. Wasn't out to fool no one. I just thought that was what I wanted
and since the real thing was financially out of my reach this temporarily made me happy. Lately it doesn't seem to matter so much.

I do use repro Fender decals on my vintage restorations. I've done lots of those.

With that said, I don't think anyone here would use a fender decal for anything other than personal taste.

if you're restoring a real fender neck then it's appropriate, specially like a vintage fender. but otherwise it's taste. I think headstocks look nice blank. I'd kind of dig a blank Tele headstock.

I could deal w/o one on the rest of mine, but for jags and jazzes its essential, they look too bare. especially the jazzy, the swooshes on the decal make it.

Hehe, and IRL I've got a lonely boring satin-tinted mappelz headstock that I'd really like to have a proper Squier label applied on.

100% Sans LULZ.

Ultra's cats are so rad. They don't have ears, but I'm love it anyway.

I'm against giving guitars false credentials, because in spite of everyone's best intentions, these guitars always seem to wind up on the open market.

I gotsa agree, the last thing a cats who already ignore their staff owners needs, is to have their radar permanently switched off from birth. But they're so cool.

My opinion is that if its Fender, replace with Fender...if its for a custom build then make yer own logo and be bloody proud of it...
As for Squier, they aint shit no more so why bullshit them up with a Fendur?
But i could quite easily be a hippocrite, as i would love a matching logo for my homebrew cab to match my 62 Bandmaster Head... Embarassed

just write something on with a sharpie if a blank headstock bothers you. if its a fender neck on a squier body i'd leave the logo alone I guess but fuck fender as a corporation fuck their corporate brand identity ,etc
