I'm currently working on a refinish of a 2011 PRS SE Singlecut. The neck snapped off the guitar, but cleanly, which allowed me to do a neck reset, which was a success. I've played and recorded with it since then-still sounds and plays great. Afterwards, I'm left with ugly battle scars along the heel and neck joint. So I decided to do a total refinish, since a spot touch-up, with my painting skills, would be ugly.
The guitar was finished in Antique White, which I LOVE. I'm redoing that on the top, but leaving it natural on the back, neck, and headstock. In doing this, I will have to remove the serial number from the back of the headstock (btw, it's serial number L12300, making it a 2011 model). I still want the serial number on the guitar, so I reproduced the entirety of the text on the back of the headstock, right down to the accurate fonts (Apparently Excelsior LT in bold makes for a hell of a serial number font when tweaked right).
For example, here is the back of the headstock of a 2008 SE Singlecut Trem, displayed on Elderly:
And here is the overlay I did on Photoshop CS2 (yeah I know I'm in the stone age). It's not perfect, but I can always tweak it in the PSD file:
Where could I have a decal printed for this, for a reasonable price? I've tried printing my own, 1) but I suck at it, and 2) I need white and gold inks, since the background of the text will be the natural mahogany, instead of the black I used so the text would show up.
NOTE: I AM NOT ATTEMPTING TO COUNTERFEIT A GUITAR. THE ONLY REASON I WANT TO REPRODUCE THIS TEXT IS SO IT WILL NOT BE CONFUSED WITH ANOTHER PRS, AND TO PRESERVE THE SERIAL NUMBER, FOR POTENTIAL RESALE.
