Hey guys - many people over the years have suggested I come up with a headstock logo. I have a friend who does graphic design and he put a few ideas together.

This is a tough decision..... who wants to help me choose? (There should be a file attached to this thread.....)

I like #1 and #4 and #7

Probably #7 would be my top choice of these three.

As you have correctly guessed/surmised ...I am into simplicity and am very conservative.

#'s 5 and 6, depending on the headstock it's going on.
#5 should have 6 inline tuners though, seeing that it's strat shaped.

Any potential copyright issues with those with the head stocks shown?

I like the flow of #10 and #14 the best but I’m not crazy about the “y” and the “t” in #10. I realize they are just a part of that font. Can #14 have more flow? It’s like a small sine wave of sound resonating out the headstock....ok, never mind!

#14 first, #7 second. I also like#11 but not its 'glitches' in the i and t.

4, 7 and 9 (maybe). I prefer the simplicity of the 1st 2. Definitely hate the ones with the guitar neck or the big overpowering ovals.

They all look nice, but tend to look more like signs for a music store than headstock logos. I would get a photo of your headstock and overlay the logos onto the headstock.

I also question the size and weight of "Guitars" to Ayr. Guitars is not that important or even necessary on a guitar. Gibson, Fender, PRS etc. don't have "guitars". It's not needed because it's on a guitar.

I suggest you ask the artist to make samples with just Ayr and/or AYR overlayed onto your headstock, and get back to us here again.

Yeah, I’ve been thinking of this too - I was unsure of putting the word “guitars” on a headstock. Ayr by itself just seemed too short and small. I wasn’t planning to put a model name on.

This is one reason I haven’t done this yet - too many decisions. I just want to build guitars..... LOL!
