Is that guitar to display your position in nuclear proliferation?

I think that if you're going to put a symbol there, have something that you would be proud of to wear as a tattoo for the rest of your life. If you approach the graphic design for your guitar that way, you'll be a lot happier with the results.

Visit a tattoo shop for inspiration. They won't mind letting you take a look at some of the artwork they do and they may even help sketch out something for you that you may like for your guitar design.

Explain your situation to them and i'm sure they'll be happy to help.

I'm also assuming you're getting someone else to do the art as well....

I might try a Viking or Celtic symbol. They look DA METULZ.

In fairness, it could apply to anything regarding radiation- a power plant, a medical device, etc.

I still see a hokey stick... I'm not sure how well the roundness of the headstock works with the pointyness of the main body.

What if the points were more rounded & flowing?

I probably will do that. Thanks!
Do you have any ideas for paint jobs?

upside down cross > pentagram

If you're not going to use a neck pickup, why not 24 frets?

Actually everyone who thinks that an upside down cross is controversial in any way is dead wrong. The inverted cross is actually considered a stronger holy symbol than the regular cross. Just look at the popes chair, if you look on the back it actually has a inverted cross carved out of it.

... Come on guys, are we really debating this on a guitar forum? This is like a thread I'd expect in The Pit.

TS, to be fair, you're giving us some pretty poorly done MS paint renditions of what you want the guitars to look like. That's not anything on you, it's just the limitations of the program. I'd recommend taking a good look around GB&C in addition to just browsing custom shop websites to get some more ideas, because on here you're just going to get "Yeah that looks cool" or "It doesn't really look that great" or something in between.
