Default Vintage bass decals?

I recently picked up a 1970's Slingerland kit, with a plain white reso on the kick.

Anyone know a place I can get a Slingerland decal for it? It's so boring right now!

Check out Ebay for one. They usually go for around $9-10 plus shipping and handling. I got two really nice ones, one white and one black, for about $14 total. They are definitely worth paying and waiting for.

If you're so inclined, you could print out a slingerland logo of the correct size and trace it through the head with a sharpie. If you do it right, nobody would be able to tell from more than a foot or so away.

A vinyl sigh shop can make them from a image file.

You may find them on ebay.

You can print it out and use tape to secure it to a product you can find at hobby shops called Monokote Trim. This is how I made this head, I did the DW logo and the shield.
