Alright so im not sure this is the riight place to post this, but i need to find something or i will never be content with my custom guitar.

Im building a custom strat, its gonna be a black body with either a white or white pearloid pickgaurd with an ebony fretboard but the inlay on the fretboard i want to be very specific. If anyone has seen the 2007 steve vai white special, the rose inlay that is in there, i want it in the same colour as the pickgaurd creeping up the neck and being completed on the headstock. if anyone knows where i can find this or somone who can do this or a way to do this please tell me.

if that is why you are playing guitar, then stop. play guitar because you like music, not because you want some pussy

I hope your willing to shell out major cash for something like that. Expect at least 300 for that to be done.

This is funny. Earlier this year I had to choose between a couple Schecters which were nearly identical, and part of my decision was to purposefully avoid the vine of life. I can think of about sixty thousand better things to spend $400 on, but I guess I'm not you.

$400 gets you a long way towards a top of the line dremel and as many practice bits as you will ever need. I think yuo could probably get the vine already pre cut so you would just have to rout and fit
sorry tahts the only helpful input i can add

oh and i found this
