Andrew inspired me to sign in the tremolo route and add a devil so this can be the devil in his dreams.

Tremolo is installed. More parts are coming in. Oh and I decided to not use the resistor like a normal Jaguar on the tone pot. I just bridged the connection with a normal wire instead. I tend to keep tone at 10 anyways, so I don't think I will notice it.

Some photos of the process. I rough cut out my presprayed decal from the sheet.

After trimming the decal down a bit, I got the headstock lightly damp and put the decal in warm water for thirty seconds.

Posted Image

I slid the decal in place and smoothed out the air bubbles and made sure I liked where it was. Then I used a paper towel to absorb extra water.

This is a great thread! I am starting another project on a warmoth basswood strat body and a squier classic vibe neck that I got for almost nothing on e-bay (if it turns out to be a dud I will find a different one, but people seem to really dig them and in any case it hasn't arrived yet) and this is super helpful.
Also, I have been pondering putting a decal on the headstock of my Jagstang, but I am worried about seeing the lines. Does that bug you at all? Or am I just being too anal?

It doesn't bother me too much. I haven't sprayed clear on, but old vintage Fenders used to put the decal on top of the headstock instead of under the clear, so it gives it a vintage feel/look. :) It is why many old Fender's logos look worn out.

I got the neck on ebay. Just searched Stratocaster neck and this one came up. :)

Right on. Thanks for the info. :) Those headstocks look really sweat. I also can't wait to see how your guitar comes out!

I took the tape off so I could clean up the paint. It looks good. I just need to wetsand it when it is dry.

I had to sand the neck pocket left and right because the neck is a little wide. This meant I also had to dremel the pickguard a bit to get that to fit as well. Here it is with all the other stuff laying on it. Hopefully the bridge fits in place ok when it arrives.
