    [​IMG]
    I did it with the curves/pen in photoshop as I still can't figure out how to use illustrator properly.
    Feel free to comment give me advices, as it's still on progress. :)

    This may be a dumb question but, I am fairly new to computers and have had to learn them on my own. How do I get the new font into microsoft word? Thanx in advance.p.s windows xp is my os. Never mind, got it. Seek and ye shall find.

    Thanks Colt W. Knight!
    Logo master JBennett send me two of his version of my logo, which forced me to learn a thing or two on Illustrator.
    And here's the result:

    After some reading (Fender Stratocaster Chronicles-Fender Golden Age books) I've come up with the idea that a more 'transition' Logo would makes sense as the MJT Telemaster I've ordered would be Olympic white with a 3ply white guard and a rosewood fretboard.
    So here's the result:

    Already spent hours doing that! :) But that gives some guidance on how to shape some letters just like the W and the T

    Nice work. I like the transition job you did there. You can't do that by browsing script at myfonts. Great interpretation.

    Just thought you might find this interesting

    If you want to print a convincing gold from your printer at home set your colour mixer to these settings:
    C: 0%
    M: 18%
    Y: 48%
    K: 45%

    Also if you look on http://www.brandsoftheworld.com/search/logo/fender there are the telecaster and strat logos on their in vector format.

    Those are great. I like the closed "a" on the 60's style script better than the open "a" which looks like a stunted "d". Maybe the tail of the a is just a little too high to work? Also, the join of the a and h is a little odd. Sorry to be so hyper critical even though you didn't ask. It is just that it is so close to perfect. Nice work indeed.

    thanks! jediah's letters are very close to fender's so i just cut/flipped some letters. i have no photoshop skills/patience at all hehe.

    yeah the a and h looks weird but i didn't bother to edit it anymore (patience issue again)

    I like the Jediah "CBS" logo though I would add the dot to the I. :)

    thanks!

    yeah, it was too late when i realized a dot would've looked better. i already have the decals printed. and i'm too lazy to fix it hehe.

    he won't be proud of me:
