I decided to go in a different direction with my headstock plates. I used to get these laser-engraved, but it turned out to be a PITA. Now I’m trying out a silkscreened sample from the guy down the hall from my shop. I really have to thank the guys down at The Daily Press Manufacturing – I think this headstock looks great!
I am pretty excited about this; this silkscreen technique will open up a lot of different possibilities. I’m picturing floral prints on bodies or maybe limited editions from my favorite illustrators or whatever. Pretty cool stuff. It’s really just a matter of working with the silkscreen guy to develop the technology. I like the idea of printing directly onto a guitar
I’ll be putting this neck on one of my new Sirena Pistolera basses.
