That is sweet David. Where do you think you will brand the guitar? The neck block perhaps, or the back side of the headstock?
I will get me one of those this next year......

On backs that are of lighter colored woods I was thinking right inside under the sound hole where most people put labels (I don't have plans to use labels). It will show up nicely on the white oak B&S that I'm building. On darker woods for backs where it won't show up, like John said, on the center splice, again, right under the sound hole.
