Pain in the Rear!

I don´t get what you´re complaining about.
The logo is on top of the clearcoat, and has been for years. On all PRS except where it is inlayed with paua or abalone.
Fender Customshops have the Fender decals above the headstock paint.
Gibsons have silkscreened "Les Paul" above the paint.
So your criticism is not fair IMO.
Be glad they send you an original "P" to replace it. Just try and ask Gibson and Fender if they would do something similar.
PRS makes quality Instruments that are very well worth the price you pay for them - especially if you compare them to similar priced Fenders and Gibsons.
You cannot honestly say that " Gibson seems to be made better"---- Even my Customshop Gibson Reissues are a QC nightmare compared to my PRS guitars
Ah no, Fender does not apply the waterslide to a finished headstock.And everywhere you ask, they'll tell you the very same thing. You do that, and that waterslide is a gonner even if you sand with 800 grit.
Also clearcoating makes the waterslide edges "disappear" when you level the finish, if you do it right.
That's how they do it, a bit more than applying a sticker. However, if the finish was already messed up, chances are somebody scratched all the way down to the silk screened logo, not good.
