    I like the third one down on the right too.
    Also a cool look would be to make the letters look like ropes. Kinda like Asleep At The Wheel's bus.

    I like the one on the right, third one down. Nice and ranchy. Don't know how I missed this thread. This is going to be cool.

    I would remove the underline under THE. Makes it seem too self-important?

    Do you have a font that matches the pickguard?

    My favourite is top right.

    Have you considered the text with either the cowboy or the cactus (but not both)?

    That sounds familiar....it sure does give ya a newfound appreciation for the work of The Masters, doesn't it ?

    i think the logo on the upper right is the best of the bunch....

    thanks for the input fellers... I'll have to decide... I'm thinking a little decal on the back too... the countdown begins... the stuarts are on the way, boris helped me pick a more suitable bridge.. so, a cool glendale (with the b bender cutout) and the bakersfield saddles are on the way... Brian is ready for me to be done so he can do the bender...

    I am gonna have some time tomorrow afternoon for some additional finish work and maybe the decals.... it is becoming real...

    I can't wait!

    Edits
    • delete cactus image (got one on the pg)
    • delete "THE"
    • move cowboy to the left
    Perfect

    My favorite one so far...

    I'm not sure about that white circle in the bottom one. If you want a circle, how about a clear one (just the circle outline). I still think I'd like the non-circle one better. Did you try one with just the cacti - to match the cacti on that pickguard?

    Is that pg custom made, or did you find it off the shelf like that?

    Sean, yeah, I wouldn't use the circle... nor the white...

    the pg is custom.

    I've also thought that I may put one on the back near the heel...

    That works. I'm just flowing with that old image of a cowboy leaning back against a post.;)

    And I know that I "see things", but I like the Ranch Hand to also image as a fence in the background.

    The circle deal would actually be cool on the back.

    I may make the circle thing a vinyl sticker for my case... I have a cafepress site and it is so easy to design cups and stickers etc.... that may be what I do... hmm we need new stuff for the band... hmmmm (twists end of moustache) muahahhahahahahhah I will rule the worlt!

    it would be cool to draw the cowboy leaning against a fence with one boot heel on the bottom rung and have the post be the back of the R...
