    And how about the fact that a warmoth is a fender licensed product? What does that account for?

    Sticky subject on decals no pun intended... I personally like the imitations so it's not too misleading..

    I wouldn't ever put a Fender waterslide on the headstock because I think that is ridiculous but I buy Fender necks when needed and I certainly wouldn't sand the original off either....

    The reason why there’s so much talk of the neck is...
    That’s where the logo goes.
    If this was about Steinberger, the talk would be about the body having a faked logo. And applying a Steinberger logo to another brand guitar would be just as sketchy.

    When I first read this thread I was of the opinion that it didn't matter about sticking a Fender logo on a Squier but after reading the arguments against it I have been enlightened and have changed my mind. I never cease to learn things from this forum. Thanks for the good discussion guys.

    To be fair, a big part of the hardware that makes it worthwhile would go along for the ride. Warmoth makes good stuff. You still shouldn't put a Fender logo on it.

    It's déjà vu all over again.

    Even if it's one of these? ;)

    Using the car analogy, what about custom car builders that take an original car like a camaro and rebuild it; new frame, new drive train, new body panels, all the interior replaced etc. and then put new Chevy emblems on it, is that OK? The car is nothing like what rolled off the GM assembly line but this happens all the time, and they sell for big dollars.

    I’ve seen photos of stickers that say ‘Obvious custom copy’ instead of ‘Original Contoured Body’

    Did not know you got a warmoth decal. Will definitely use that instead

    Well that’s the thing. It’s got all fender parts except the body

    There are many possible variations on that theme, this one is from 1980.

    I know it was a typo in the OP but I like the idea of a warming neck . I often get cold hands and I think it would help me play faster. Would be good for playing outdoors in the winter too.
