headstocks....

Thinking about getting a replica LNG Jem made by someone like Perle Guitars or ET Guitars in Australia.... Just wondering if these guys are allowed to add the Ibanez Logo to the headstock, or did you guys with custom guitars have to add it afterward?


Cheers!

ET doesn't put the Iby logo on their headstocks. Copyright infringement. I have worked with them. Don't know about Perle. Most reputable builders avoid this though and leave it to you as the owner to add the logo...

Re: headstocks....

Thanks..... I guess u just ask for the headstock not to be clear coated and add the logo yourself and get it clear coated locally?.... Thanks

Re: headstocks....

Yeah pretty much. Several places sell the Iby headstock logo as a vinyl sticker so you can add it yourself. Everyone wants the logo so it looks authentic but the shops have to cover their asses.

Re: headstocks....

Yeah that's a fair call.... I'm guessing the logo would have to be quite think so not to sit raised on the headstock?.... I know the new RGs etc have the raised mirrored Ibanez lettering, but I'm guessing the older Jems were just flat?

Older ones were silkscreened I believe.

Yes--the old logos were silk screened.

Re: headstocks....

Thin vinyl or that really thin foil would probably be best?

Re: headstocks....

Most of the after-market logos are thin enough to clear over.........just make sure that what you choose is made to be cleared over. Some are not. The clearcoat will destroy those type of stickers. Check with the vendor before buying.

Re: headstocks....

Just an FYI, the original LNG logo did not have clear over it.
