    Does anyone have a good source for a decal for a partscaster? Hopefully a source that someone has hands on experience with a quality decal and image.

    Something like "Faked partocaster" or something similar. I don't want the vulgar version (I have kids...lol). I can just google it, but I have had varying quality of decals over the years from different sources. I'm looking for a quality example and am willing to pay a few bucks more for that.

    I'm also not looking to put a Fender logo on this, so let's not have this devolve into a 20 page thread of pontification on the ethics of fake decals...I'm not looking to do that.

    You can buy the decal paper and print your own.

    I had one made by a guy on Ebay. I forget who, sorry, but he did custom work with metallic ink and such. I went with "Friendo Telecopy."

    Yes, I might use one of those “Custom Less Real” water slides on an ES-150 DC copy I have...fantastic guitar, but lacking in the headstock logo area.

    Our own slinger72, makes them. I had him make me up a couple, and couldn't be happier. Great guy, great product, and great service.

    Rothko and Frost make high quality custom headstock decals.

    One or two guys post regularly in the Parts and Accessories Emporium. They might be one of the ones mentioned above.

    If it cost you less to build that a Fender would cost to buy, call it Fewer SPENTOCOSTER

    See, I’ve never considered doing a partscaster for the cost savings. I do mine so that I can have all of the specifications that I prefer on my guitars. In fact, a couple of my parts casters cost more than brand new fender American standards. They also play and sound a helluva lot better! :cool:

    I think building a parts caster to try and save money is a fools errand! YMMV

    ThEn call it a "Fancier SPENDYCOSTER"

    Or in acknowledgement of its pieced-together status
    Franken STEINOCASTER
