    Just got this new Seafoam Strat for Christmas sounds pretty good and the action has been set up.I plan to put in Texas Specials and Fender tuners.Very cool indeed!I might paint the head stock the same color as the body Krylon makes spray paint in a close match.I will put a Fender Strat decal on it while retaining the serial number . 20171225_161624.jpg

    @Philo426 Why would you put Fender decal on a Squier? Are you ashamed of it? It's a great guitar and beautiful, no need to try and "make it something else".

    Not ashamed.but I don't think I can get a replacement Squire decal once I paint the headstock,there will be no confusion because the Squire and serial number info on the back of the head stock will be retained.

    Of course you can get a Squire decal. If you can get a Fender one why not a Squire?

    The correct Squier decals are, of course, much harder to get and more expensive.

    I'd have one custom decal made that says Squire Seafiam Steat...

    To each his own but realize that painted headstocks have very limited appeal and you’ll be for sure compromising resale value. Not that these have much resale value but still. Hardest will be the exact color match. I see many complaints of those who do this who are saddened its visibly lighter or darker vs the body than they had hoped...

    It is certainly a nice looking Squire, but I sure wouldn't paint the headstock. Original makes it even better.

    Why do you care what he does to his guitar? He’s not doing it with malicious intent

    Leave the headstock as is!

    Its cool. And the color of that guitar is amazing.

    It only thing I would consider to replace is pickups, nut, bridge block, and the pickguard to mint green.
    Nothing else.
