Re: refinishing my rg3120

Theres a guy on eeeeebaaay that sells stick on ibanez logos for all models.Simply buy the prestige logo version and cut off the prestige part and stick it on. He's got nothing listed at the moment but keep checking. Search 'ibanez headstock decal' ,'ibanez logo decal' etc.

Re: refinishing my rg3120

I believe corey's refering to "decals" as opposed to "stickers".


The decal is applied over the paint of the headstock THEN you apply clearcoats.


This will seal the decal under the finish and it will be impervious to wear within reason.

This is an orange aftermarket Ibanez decal cleared over a purpleheart veneer, it isn't going anywhere.

Re: refinishing my rg3120

I believe people make their own. Easy enough to make a photoshop template of the logo to prety much perfect size and the rest is just having equipment able to reproduce a decal based off that design.
