Hi folks. Helping you can help me. Firstly, my headstock. I have a late 80s lawsuit style tele that's a copy of a blackguard. A few years ago, I decided it would be a good idea to sand the decal off and put a Fender Telecaster one on because, you know, when you're young you do stupid things. Anyway, it never looked great regardless and recently I decided enough was enough and to sand it off. I wasn't going to bother with a new decal but I'm now left with this: So, I've decided I want to replace it with a custom decal or something like the original logo (not a Fender!). Either way, I'm determined that I will get this right this time and that this will look as flawless as possible. So, what is the best way of getting the newly sanded area to match the rest of the headstock? The finish has darkened considerably over the years and is now fairly amber. This being the case, do you think I should risk a product like this just to paint over the sanded away part: https://www.northwestguitars.co.uk/...mber-nitrocellulose-chip-repair-guitar-paint/ Or, do I want to be sanding the whole face of the headstock back to even and bare wood and starting again with something like this: https://www.northwestguitars.co.uk/vintage-amber-nitrocellulose-guitar-paint-lacquer-aerosol-400ml/ If I refinish the whole headstock, would I want to go with the vintage tint, apply the decal and then apply layers of clear over the top? Or would the amber tint be transparent enough that I could spray layers over the top of the new decal? Secondly, I have acquired a bakelite pickguard for the guitar in order to finish off the whole vintage vibe. The guard is unfinished, so is the process basically the same? i.e. cover with layers of clear nitro and then sand accordingly? Many thanks for any help!
