I think my headstock should just shut up man.
HAHA, I've definitely used my guitars to shut up family members my whole life.
"What do you want your headstock to say?"
If my headstock ever says anything.. I'm running . . run away...
but if you're gonna make me choose....
Don't blame me, I saw this on Google search
WOKE UP THIS MORNING
Telecaster, leave it there.
Y'all can ignore me. My sense of humor only applies to me.
I want it to say whatever it is...If it’s an Esquire, I want it to say “Esquire”...if it is a Telecaster, I want it to say “Telecaster”...if it’s a Breezysound or a Pacifica or a Talman or whatever, that’s what I want it to say.
Ive already picked names for the partscasters and builds that I’m collecting...it may look like a Telecaster-Like-Object, but it isn’t a Telecaster, so it won’t say that.
Both of mine say Nash.

Here's how we do it in Maine:
I buy the custom "Jesus Praiseworthy" and "Jesus Saves" decals for all my Fender-esque instruments.
I liked my 52 Telecaster best.
I had a 1952 Esquire back in 1970 that I paid $250 to buy. The guy who sold it to me told me he got it at a garage sale in South Carolina for $60. They now sell at prices from $25,000 and $50,000. I always liked the single pup version of the "Tele".
There are lots of nice pics of well done head stocks here. I am influenced! I attach a picture of my 1st attempt. My hobby is renovating CHEAP guitars to make them impressive players. I leave all electronics and hardware original. I refinish if they're thrashed. This "Heimganger" logo Is computer paper and packing tape which lends itself perfectly as a water slide decal. I had to sand off the original logo which was "Rock Jam". "Rock jam" SCREAMS "krap"!! My luthier efforts on this beginner guitar resulted in a machine that has "the feel". Its not something you can explain as some of you know, it's just a bond or a fit that a random guitar can hit you with out of the blue like that damn old shirt your wife is threatening to sneak into the garbage. Heimganger is a German adjective describing the person who prefers to stay home. Maybe that's what "homeboy" means? Anyway that's me. I figure you can't beat a warm sunny day spent in the basement working and practicing on guitars.
Might be the most iconic headstock of all time, I don't really think its needs any language on it.
Although both mine say "Telecaster", but always wanted a Nocaster
I had a really nice-spec musikraft tele neck that I used on an assembly project several years ago...I ended up gigging it so much that I decided to slap a Squier decal on the headstock so it wouldn't draw attention. It worked.
