Hi, total newbie here. Have a question I think this forum is the only appropriate place to ask

I have just purchased a silver star but someone has unsympathetically scratched off the headstock logo (I think this is pretty common).

I'm struggling to find a stockist for decals (anyone know? I'm in UK) so figured if no luck I might make my own and get vinyl cut in a graphic house.

Wondered if anyone knows the correct font to use? I suspect it is a modified or custom font, but they must have started with something. Just can't find the right font to modify.

I've had a look at "Banff-Normal" as I read it is similar to fender but is not much like tokai speghetti logo. It is too angled. Same goes for some of the "brush script" fonts I've looked at.

If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

He did the same for me (for a different guitar/logo) & it was stunningly good.
