    I prefer mine say Fender and telecaster.

    If it doesn't, I'd prefer a clever approximation, such as something lewd that starts with "F" and in the same script as fenders logo, with "insert-name-here-caster" under that.

    If I was feeling real fancy, thered by subliminal messages cryptically hidden in bogus patent numbers and a serial number under that.

    But I typically prefer Fender.....

    I bought an American Elite that reads “Telecaster” so that’s what I want it to read. I don’t understand the question. None of the 8 headstocks I own have much to say anyway.

    My Richie Kotzen is a "Telecaster" too. The question is really just "which one do you wish you had" are you happy with Tele or do you wish it was a broadcaster or nocaster or the many options provided by others

    This is what I do with the front of the headstock. A homage of sorts.

    I like vintage specs, so I’ll go with “LACQUERCASTER”.

    Edit: Although, when the guitar's factory made and branded i'll go with the originals. Would like to use Telecaster, but not sure where the limit goes in this case (only body plus some bits are originals). With the new neck, I first had new Squier TELECASTER decals too, but ended up without. Partly because I messed the layout while applying it..
