    Seriously, I am torn between these two different Fender emblems on my new Player Stratocaster.

    I will permanently attach one of the Fender amp badges to the guitar. Which one should it be?

    I'd go with the one beneath the bridge.

    Although I could never drill holes in a Strat like that myself...but that's just me.

    What is on the headstock?
    Why add more “Fender” ?

    I would go with the first one also. More subtle and classy and it looks like much less work to install.

    .

    Put the big one from the bridge to the tail strap pin.

    Do know that over time either one, besides any mounting hole drilling going on, will have different rates of sun fading/tanning.

    Best option is put that big logo on the lower bout pickguard between the switch and horn.

    I have to wonder if the guitar is a Fender in the first place.
    If it is, why deface it at all?

    Use both and put one on the back and a bigger one on the headstock

    This is the only correct answer. I have an opinion, and I do think one looks better than the other, but none is best by a large margin.

    None.
    Put an amp emblem on a guitar body is as weird as put a guitar bridge over the grill of an amp.

    Neither.

    The one beneath the bridge is merely capricious and sort of clumsy.

    The large-ish Fender amp logo on the upper horn is crazy-unattractive, and very much akin to a three-pound eyebrow piercing on an otherwise-fetching woman.

    But that's just me.

    Neither but if you are dead set on one, the one under the bridge

    +1 for none. It's a beautiful guitar - it doesn't need anything else, but a player.

    Each one, to me, looks undesirable. You have a perfect looking Strat already. Cheers!
