    Hi folks,
    I have bought a 1997 Swamp Ash Special that the previous owner had started to refinish, but thankfully realised he had run out of ability before he made a complete mess of it. The problem I have is that he removed the headstock decal, so I need a replacement. I got one from Ebay, which was rubbish, so I contacted the factory, who said they can fit one to my guitar for $100, but I would need to ship from the UK to USA & back, that isn't going to happen!
    Does anyone know where I can source a correct decal?

    Brian.

    That’s sadly the only way to source one.

    Occasionally in the past a few slipped out of the factory, and you’d find them on eBay, and usually with a single letter missing (they have a tendency to fall off).

    You can get BS stickers and waterslides, but as you’ve experienced... they’re pretty lame.

    You could just remove the neck and ship that to PRS for less $?

    You could try contacting PRS Europe to see if they can help.

    This one. Otherwise use a vinyl cutter (my wife has one) and do it that way.
