Ibanez Roadstar headstock decal

Hi,

I'm looking for a solid white headstock decal for an Ibanez Roadstar. I only need the part which says Ibanez, not the rest of the text.

Does anyone know anywhere that sells these? Or maybe has an image I could have printed?

Thanks,
Pete

Hi,

That would be great! Then I can find somewhere to have it printed.

Can't wait to see it!

Thanks,
Pete

Yeah, or even better, you can find someone with a plotter to cut the draw into colored self-adhesive vinyl and apply it to your guitar. Or you can use the vinyl as a mask if you want a real paint job. You'll get something like the logos on this image. PM me with your e-mail

I've been looking for that logo too... though I had given up! I sanded the paint off my Roadstar's headstock years ago and it's been blank ever since.

Re: Ibanez Roadstar headstock decal

This sounds crazy, maybe even illegal, but wouldn't this be cool but with "Ibanez" decal on a car? Even if it's like the chrome logo on a car. Here's a Gibson logo on a car:

http://www.bornrich.com/gibson-renau...-festival.html

I know the car from the link got permission and likewise with the guitar company using the name of the car put onto the guitar. But it's so funny how litigious companies can get over things like logos.

In my small town one restaurant owned by an attorney somehow managed to let his own restaurant be allowed within city limits to use the word "restaurant" on it's sign. Other restaurants were put in the phone book under the category of restaurants and used the word restaurant on their menus and advertisement but only this one lawyer-owned restaurant locked in the term restaurant for signage. Of course that was challenged and eventually struck down, but it's amazing what people or organizations can lay claim to. Common sense would say that other restaurants should be allowed to use the term "restaurant" on its signs but it all comes down to letter of the law and paying for stuff through lawyers.

I have thought about getting raised plastic or metal "Fender" amp logos and replacing them onto my car where it otherwise says Volvo, but having been in law school just a year scared the idea out of me real quick. I am sure somebody with that company could get mad and sent me a nice packet in the mail. I know it's tempting, but since I don't think Ibanez would be as likely to notice, I kind of like those raised Ibanez logos from Ibanez amps for my car.

Re: Ibanez Roadstar headstock decal

Can someone with an old Roadstar II please measure the length of the Roadstar II headstock decal? I think from the bottom left tip of the Ibanez "I" to the upper right tip of the "S" in "SERIES" would be a good overall length measurement.

Thanks!!

I just got your PM bro.....some SERIOUS eye candy in there!! There's at least 10 that I would buy right now. Most could be flipped for a profit (especially the white Kramer American...) We'll talk more about it tomorrow.

Measures exactly 111.75mm or 4.40"

Re: Ibanez Roadstar headstock decal

Hi My name is Glen

I was wondering if anyone has had success reproducing the art for the Roadstar II headstock decal
I have found an all black Roadstar II with the Logo in silver and wish to refinish to near original (including screen printing the logo) but need the art so that I can have a go at making a silk screen.
I have tried scanning the headstock but do not have the software to clean up the image to be usable for my purpose.
could anyone assist, or advise where I would go to have the headstock scanned and a usable image produced. I live in Sydney Australia. I can post a copy of the scam I have done and provide measurements.

Re: Ibanez Roadstar headstock decal

Dredging up an old thread, but I was wondering if anyone had succeeded in making a Roadstar II decal, or else could provide a high resolution image or vector file of the logo. I would be happy to compensate for either.

Thanks in advance!
