    A lot of the folks around here use water-slide decal paper. You print your design onto the decal paper using an inkjet printer; cut the design out, then using water and light touch you slide (hence the name) the see-through logo onto the head stock... I'm sure someone will be able to point you in the direction of a thread with a step-by-step. But that would require you to scan your drawing onto the computer first

    thanks man,when i come across some timber i think will suit,and it having enough material to make one i think i will,i didn't want one on it,also didn't want crome or anything silver on it either,all that will be silver are the bridge,frets,strings,neck pickup,and the bottom of the tuners.
    strap buttons,string furrules,string trees,neck plate,bridge pickup are all black,
    oh and the nut will be white of course ha.
