First custom build - feedback and suggestions?

Hey all!

I decided that my next guitar will be a custom one. The body will be custom made by Warmoth guitars and i'll buy and assemble everything else myself (neck, hardware, electronics). Here's a picture with the different finishes I was thinking of and the specs. I'd like your opinion on which one looks best. Also if you have any tips or leads go ahead! Thanks!

I like 2 and 4 but am not a fan of the vine of life inlays.

3. But it seems like a dull green to me.

So 4 or 2. 2 is my 1st choice behind 3.

Also, love the vine of life

Thanks for the feedback! Also i want to ask you guys, where do you think I could buy the JEM 5pc maple neck? I searched on eBay and other websites and all I seem to find is the wizard neck. Which is also great but I really those scalloped frets and the tree of life inlays!

If you can't find it anywhere you might have to get it custom made.
