    That is hilarious! I love it. I’d plagiarize your idea if I thought wifey would be cool with it, but she’d think it’s over the top. Heck, I might do it anyway. My only bass has a Badass bridge on it (stock). When my little girl got old enough to read, she saw it as I was practicing and said “daddy, is that a bad word?” I thought fast and explained that it was pronounced “badozz.” She said “oh” and that was the end of that.

    OK so four out of 141 votes said they want their headstock to say nocaster.

    Does anybody really want the word on their headstock?
    Or is it like only some can see ghosts?
    Maybe a casual encounter on CL that “never happened”?
    Credit card charge for lady of the evening?

    No tell caster?

    Asking for a friend...

    Nice thread Max.
    In answer, I just want it to say Fender Telecaster. Boring, right? One of my Teles is a Richie Kotzen and his name is on the headstock, but I’m not a fan of artist names being there. At least in his case, the guitar really was meticulously speck’d and designed specifically for him as opposed to some that are basically just Telecasters with an artist’s name as an afterthought to add imaginary value to the guitar. And I’m sorry, but I don’t possess the major league cajones required to feel comfortable playing live behind a Stevie Ray Vaughan Strat. I saw one in a local music store and it took a very long time to sell it even though it was actually underpriced. “Stratocaster” will suffice, thank you.
    Again: Fender Telecaster.

    I have the Kotzen as well, though I just added a Thinline and all of a sudden the Kotzen seems less interesting. It's the best looking tele I've ever seen but I just wish the neck was halfway between Large C and Regular C (not modern C). Great sitting down/recording tones but just feels like a hassle now that the Thinlines here. I never minded the signature of his but I hear ya. I think you can play the SRV guitar if you want. At this point any references to anyone like SRV (whether real or sarcastic) is a welcome. The worlds really moved on from guitar heroes.

    We've already been over this. A vote for Nocaster (in this case) means you'd have an original 50's Nocaster which wouldnt say Nocaster on it.

    This is silver inlay on hand made Strat Walnut neck (NOT an official license Fender product). It’s on my custom built mahogany and tiger maple capped Tele (sunset or tobacco burst). Probably illegal use of copywriting but ...

    Every time I've looked at that cover I've wondered " Did Robbie want to look like Rick ? Or vice versa ? " ;)

    As a kid I wanted to BE Rick!
    Never really noticed Robbie and didn't even know he became associated with the Telecaster long before I picked one up...
