Hope this finds you well.
I'm wondering if anyone can identify the typeface or know of one similar for the Z in the attached logo for Zemaitis guitars?
For some reason the image did not attach the first time. Here it is.
It's probably hand-drawn. Why do you think it's from a typeface? Is there other matching lettering somewhere?
Is that a musical instrument? We have a user here by the name of "mica" who specializes in that - try to find/ask him.
I don't know that it's a typeface. That's why I asked if anyone knew of a typeface that might be similar to it.
Yes. It's the headstock of a guitar.
Thanks. Is there a particular forum he's usually in?
(BTW, I meant "her", not "him".)
Zemaitis has such amazing hand engraving (the real stuff, not like the directed scratches you get at a trophy shop), that it must have been hand drawn Tony Zemaitis himself. You might even write the company in England and see if they know (Tony passed away a few years ago). It sort of reminds me of lettering I've seen on western saddles, which probably doesn't help much in finding a similar font.
My specialty is our own guitars, but I do love musical instruments of all types!
Good suggestion on contacting the company...and Western saddles might be a good search term for fonts. Thanks Mica!
