    Some of you may have seen the photos of my Telecaster; I have a static cling decal on it. this is what it looks like. I just got a new custom neck plate made by Toys For Guitars. I uploaded the photo, they sent me a proof via e-mail, and then I got it in the mail and put it on my Tele.

    I was looking at those on ebay, does it look like the image would be pretty durable?

    I think these images are chemically etched into the metal. ( I know some guys do that) and the chemically etched metal would be very durable of course.

    Pretty slick way to add a custom touch. Hmm...the graphics potential is wide open!
