Question Best way to mount a GoPro on a Jem headstock?

Just wondering here if a GoPro adhesive mount would damage the logo finish of a Jem headstock...
Maybe any other kind of mount?
Anyone here ever tried this?

Steve himself had a GoPro mounted, but at the bottom of the guitar, not at the headstock:

Any thoughts on the best way to attach it to the headstock?

This is what I'm talking about... if this adhesive wouldn't damage the Jem headstock finish. It's a pretty strong glue beneath that thing.

I'm still wondering if it would press too tight, to the point of damaging the headstock finish...

I'm gonna buy one of these anyway, really useful.

Re: Best way to mount a GoPro on a Jem headstock?

Since this is the first thing that appears on Google when you search on the subject, I'll update this..

I bought the GoPro instrument mount adhesives, and I glued one at the headstock. I'm a bit afraid because the surface area is a lot off... it seems to hold well in place, even when shaking a bit the camera, but I'm still not 100% confident.

I have some gigs and rehearsals to come, so let's see how well it performs.
