Logo re-design

I have a logo (attached Lanxton Logo file) that I use for custom built guitars. I made the logo from my original signature, captured electronically and edited in Microsoft Paint. I then added some text using free fonts to come up with what I currently use. I do not have the software needed to improve my logo, so I need someone to take what I have and enhance it. The problem is that MS Paint is very crude and leaves the edges somewhat pixilated, so it doesn't look smooth even when I shrink it. I like the idea of using my actual signature but I think it can be improved upon. I am open to suggestions but would like for the new logo to be in the "spirit" of my original signature.

The words "Custom Guitars" and "Marietta, Georgia" are done using the Tommy Hilfiger font. I like this but, again, I'm open to suggestions. As you can see from the attached word document (Sample Logo 01222014), I insert the image into Word, then flip it to print in reverse onto transfer paper through a laser printer. I then use metalic paint pens (silver or gold) to add color to the logo. What's left is a silver or gold logo with a black border. Printing out the Word document will give you an idea of the actual dimensions needed. It could be slightly taller, but not much wider. The letters in "Lanxton" cound also be fattened up and taller - again, in eeping with the essnce of the original signature.

I have also attached a third file (Lanxton-template-01) that shows a logo that was designed for me using the guitar headstock. the outline of the guitar headstock is exactly like the shapes I build. They designed two logos - one for each shape - but I would prefer one logo that can be used interchangeably. I do not like the L in this logo and prefer something closer to the cursive "L" in my original signature.

I need to final logo to be available in a file format that can be inserted into Word, since I will continue to print these on transfer paper through the laser printer and don;t have access to more sophicated software (jpeg, tiff, png? - whatever the best format is that I can use).

Finally, if I could get a couple of options to choose from that would be great - keeping in mind this is a low-budget project. Please let me know if you have any questions.
