I'd get a pro to add a coat of clear to it, personally. Shouldn't cost much, you won't be able to tell any difference and it'll be protected well.

Re: Protecting Ibanez/JEM headstock transfers

Yeah, good idea. I wouldn't do it myself either, especially out of a spray can. A car body painting shop would maybe do it for you. It'd be a very quick job for them and I think if you asked nicely they'd do it. Alternatively you could post your neck to somewhere like Sims Custom Shop and they'd do the work for you. Sims link banner is at the top of the site.

EDIT: Oh, hang on, I just realized you also in the UK. You could send it to the UK Sims Custom Shop. I have a contact email address because I was also recently asking for some work. Contact Martin Sims here: [email protected]

Hiya Nikster

My experience and advice are very generously given for free by calling me personally on my mobile. And i don't expect to be mis-quoted on Jemsite when you haven't listened properly to my advice.

Which was :

1) Don't bother - if you're going to beat your guitar up that badly, then whether the logo gets scuffed is neither here nor there. The ibanez screen printed logo's are very durable....

2) If you insist have it clear coated. I suggested a quick easy way of doing this yourself by using off the shelf car paint (cellulose), or go to somewhere that will spray 2 pack for you....

So...... fellow Jemsiters, and UK ones in particular, please feel free to call me for advice etc, but don't go whingin' on Jemsite or elsewhere when i've given you my opinion and it wasn't what you wanted to hear......

I provide a very good service to Ibanez fans the world over, my E**y feedback shows this along with the many others i deal with away from E**y. Theres plenty of guys probably reading this who i have sold to, given advice to etc who will back me up here???

Night night folks - i'm post gig tired and want to go to bed.........

Max

Re: Protecting Ibanez/JEM headstock transfers

I suggest not worrying about it and just properly taking care of the guitar.

I don't really see where he whined. He said you told him to add some clearcoat to it. Then he just stated that it's not something he would ever think about doing himself. How is that whining? And he didn't even mention you in the first place, he said called a shop near him. Your the one that linked that shop to yourself. Your creating a bad image for yourself with your whole "My advice is golden. If you don't agree 100%, you better not complain on any message boards or else."
