a tree with the trunk under the d and g strings on the higher frets and branches extending across the entire fret as it moves towards the low frets?

Solid mother-of-pearl, except for areas of bare wood where the inlay dots would normally go. That's pretty excessive.

My friend has an Ibanez with these sort of wavy lines, just as markers. I think those are nice. Or you could have an image in diamond of a warlord chopping the head off of a rival orc.

One day when I'm good at inlaying, I'm gonna do that.
Thankyou sir.

a penis.


oh, I'm not in the pit, that's right.


how about something simple yet classy? Like on all the frets you want inlays, do like 3 straight lines or something, horizontal and/or verticle.

got some ideas. some are funny. some are cool to me.
1) number the frets, like 1,3,5,7,9,12,15,etc.. or ou can do it with roman numerals to look cool. on the fifth fret, twelfth fret. V and then XII.
2) different smileys.
3) guns crossed together like this but you can make it cooler guns. like glocks or something
4)inlays on matt tuck's sig jackson.
5) esp arrow inlays that some guitars have.
6) like dots but squares rotated 45 degrees like a diamond.

please dont do gay stuff like the jem or some schecter stuff.

because if u gig all the people in the crowd will just be looking at the guitar neck
and not paying attention to your playing skills
