is there a way to add designs to my fret board?
 
i was wondering if there's a way to put designs on my guitar neck, and keep my same deep metal sound. i have an Ibanez RG 408 and a BC Rich Warlock. Ive seen sinature guitars with designs on the fret board, so i know it can be done, but how is it done? or can you recommend a company that can do it for me? I live in SW Louisiana.

you have to find a custom shop that does custom fretboards. if you look up any behind the scenes video for a guitar factory, they do all the custom inlay work before they mark and cut the fretboard. don't know how much it costs but i'm sure it's not gonna come too cheap but if it's done right, it'll set your guitar apart from everyone else's. make some calls and find out who does it in your area

Depending on the design you want you can buy stickers which are designed to fit on fretboards and are almost impossible to feel and that do not affect the sound.

Let it be known, from this day forth, that any man who is to use fretboard stickers is to stand with his hands tied behind his back and his feet bound, and they are to be placed in with a grouping of ultimate guitar users in front of them, and they are to take turns slapping the hell out of said perpetrators. The sounds of the slappings will resound throughout the land and it will be known that a justice is being done through punishment of the guilty. They will be stripped of their instruments and they will no longer be allowed to posses any from thereon, and all will be well again.

Edit:Sorry, I just couldn't help it.

I think he was thinking of like spongbob stickers or something.

He forgot to say vinyl stickers.
You can even cut your own shapes if you are handy with a exacto
