good morning, hard rockers

need more opinions from the crowd here... currently putting the final touches on my Custom Guitar Plans... heres what i need ideas on - what to get as my Inlays, and what should i get printed on my headstock ?

Inlay ideas :-
AC/DC style lightning bolts on all frets (3rd 5th 7th etc)
AC/DC Bolt on 12th only
White dots on all frets
white dot on 12 only
black dots on all

Other suggestions ???

Headstock ideas :-
Manson (to make a perfect Matt Bellamy replica)
Kev
Celtic (my soccer team)
Ellis (the luthier)

*insert very confused face ?!?!* lol

really cant decide what to get on the headstock, all ideas r really REALLY appreciated

Fretboard wood? I'd go with the lightning bolt on the 12th fret, no inlays looks better in my opinion. As for the headstock, i'd put your name up there, definitely not your soccer team :P

I trust you'll give us guitar pr0n when you get it

Rosewood on the Fret Board

well i was gonna use no markers... but i recently played a guitar with none, and didnt feel totally comfortable with it, so i definatelu need something... hence i thought maybe black dots would work... as they look real subtle to others... but i can still see em =DD

hell yeah, ill be posting pics like a f***ing maniac when i get it =DD it will be my baby =DD

Why not dots on the side and blank on the board itself. You really shouldn't be looking down on the board anyways. If they are on the side only then you should be good.

How about no inlays at all? Perhaps only a cool inlay on the 12th (the lighting bolt?). That way it'd look pretty cool yet simple. As far as the headstock, I'd choose Manson (since it's a Manson custom) or your name. Better yet, choose a name for your guitar and place it on the headstock.
Wave goodbye to the past.

Id have Manson wrote on the headstock, but only so I could show off that it is a Manson Custom

Am I right in thinking you're getting this made by TC Ellis to replicate Bellamy's Manson? If so I wouldn't get Manson on it that's like slapping a fender sticker on a squier or a gibson sticker on an epiphone and a ESP stick on a ltd etc.

Lightning bolt at the 12th, and your name on the headstock.

Wait, what's your last name? If you have a lame last name, don't do that.

Powerstein ?

why thats an odd one...
#16
ohh and people... had another shift in heart, and been taking a few calls from friends with ideas... and the idea of getting an internal Fuzz Factory keeps coming up...

i know its old news for me, but im considering getting it again...

i know its kinda cliche'd because the obvious Matt Bellamy wannabe label will be strapped to me, but i would <3 to get the sorta sounds outta it that Matt does... and you just cant really with just the pedal, due to it being harder to manipulate away on the floor.

so if any1 has anything at all - information about how it works in terms of getting air raid style sounds etc that Matt does - that can sway me one way or another please speak up =/

ultimately the extra cost of the internal Fuzz Factory isnt a problem, it will be within my budget... i just wanna make sure the guitar is perfect

Your custom, your kesh. You can choose to put whatever you want on it but as you can see it's a bit silly having Manson on it.

put manson on it...show what it is


well technically its just the Manson design, its actually gettin made by a Luthier called TC Ellis...

some guy said earlier its the equivalent of putting a Gibson sticker on an Epiphone.... but i just want what makes my guitar look best really
