I think the decal guys are going to put a "hit" out on me, lol!
It will be a drive-bye Luthiering
I finally decided on a logo and ordered mine. They came in yesterday.
1 of Mike's sheets got shipped with mine too and it looks like his is chrome.
All of them look great.
Those look fantastic!
Spotted this thread and thought I'd take a punt on some for my latest build.
I have to say I'm very impressed with the quality, and it only took 7 days for them to arrive in my letterbox from my initial email to them.
Thanks Mike for bringing these guys to our attention.
Hey, that looks really nice. You are welcome.
That's what I need! Looks awesome against the black background.
Can I still apply those to a TruOil finished neck? TruOil tends to be very thin and I read those are thick, so it will create a ridge/3D effect at the logo right? I actually like that.
TruOil has a slightly yellow tint and may affect the sheen too.
any opinion of whether it'll still work?
Maybe if you apply it on top of the finished neck it'll be okay? Or you can finish the back of the neck with oil, but spray the face of the headstock with satin nitro.
I haven't used it with Tru Oil, but like with any finish, if it's thin enough, you could see the edges.
You're welcome buddy! Looks great!
I'd say that you can do it either way. It will just take a lot more coats to bury it with Tru-Oil, but in my experience, I think it could be done. I buried regular water-slide decals in Tru-Oil without going to any extreme measures. And I don't think that you'd get too much of the yellowing effect once you sand it level. The finish right over top would be pretty thin, but it would definitely yellow up the surrounding wood. I think if I was going to use Tru-Oil and these though, that I'd just apply the decals over the top and let them stand out. I think my real fear would be that unless I built it up so thick I could bury it, that there would be build-up in the nooks and crannies of the small detail areas of the decal. I think it would be hard to get any small interior spaces leveled out.
I just found this thread in time to reorder electroformed logos...thanks!
