    HAHA, I've definitely used my guitars to shut up family members my whole life.

    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.

    I buy the custom "Jesus Praiseworthy" and "Jesus Saves" decals for all my Fender-esque instruments.

    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. 20201006_112306.jpg

    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.
