How to Apply our Decals

Having a layer or two of finish on the headstock will be optimal.

  1. Cut around the entire image leaving a 1-2 millimeter edge.
  2. Put the decal in room temperature water for 30 to 60 seconds.
  3. Carefully take the decal out of the water and separate the transparent layer from the paper backing and place it on the desired spot on the headstock.
  4. Gently press out any bubbles and lightly pat with a cloth to dry it.
  5. Let the decal dry for for at least a few hours.

Our decals are thin and blends very well with the headstock; however, you can spray a clear coat over it as well. They fit well on nearly all types of Stratocasters and Telecasters.
