    I'm getting ready to build a Jake E Lee "tribute" Strat. His original guitar was a pearl white Charvel with black tuners. I can do all of that but don't want to simply slide a "Charvel" decal onto the headstock and I believe it won't look "right" without something there. Any ideas?

    You guys were a huge help when I was planning my USMC Tele build for my dad and I figured I can go to the proverbial well one more time. (The Tele is still in progress. Ohio's winter has halted applying the clearcoat and finishing it. It will happen soon, though.)

    I'm not the kind of person who can draw something like that up, or photoshop it. But how about something shaped like the Charvel logo with a word of your choice. Use something that starts with a CH and it will be hard to notice until you look closely. Charming, C.Hammer, Chopper, something like that.

    I was actually considering doing "Jake E Lee" in the Charvel logo and where the word "Stratocaster" would be on a Strat, have it say "Tribute Model"

    I'm having trouble making the "J" look like the Charvel "C", though.

    I like where this one is going. The pick could be the rounded part of the guitar body and "tribute" could be the neck and headstock. Are you able to modify the image?
