Warmoth logo...kinda weird

    I have mixed feelings about Warmoth Logo. Great company, excellent quality. But their logo would rather fit a Chinese toy guitar, which you win in a Christmas Market than a serious guitar company.

    Those rounded letters remind me the fairytale books from my childhood but look ridiculous on a relic guitar neck.
    Example of a good guitar logo:

    Example of an excellent guitar logo: Fender, Tom Anderson, Kirn, FGN. Even G&L and Suhr look better on the guitar than Warmoth.
    As far as I know there's no way to order a neck from Warmoth w/o logo. So nobody would put a Fender sticker on it.
    Anyone else finds Warmoth logo kinda toyish?

    I like the Warmoth logo, also the turtle with the guitar.

    The USACG is more modern, like the Tom Anderson or Tyler logo. Not really my cup of tea.

    Warmoth necks do not typically come w logos on the headstock. Just got a finished 10-16 tele style neck from them, headstock has no logo (warmoth labeling on heel only)

    Exactly - Warmoth necks always come without a logo - usually they include a decal in the package, letting you decide whether you want to use it or not.

    Roman and IronSchef are correct - warmth necks do not come with an installed logo. I have bought maybe 8 necks from them... high quality in my opinion, many choices. I never install the logo, though.

    Nothing special about it, off the shelf stuff, no bespoke typeface created, no fuss, but if it works for them, thats the important thing.

    I wish they would offer a spaghetti logo. I would have put that on my Warmoth Jazzmaster in a heartbeat.

    I did come up with these for both of my Warmoth necks using Inkscape. 1511310338391.jpg 1511310344257.jpg

    Per their licensing agreement with Fender they are not allowed to install a logo on the headstock.
