Inlay Ideas for my new UVMC


My loving and gracious wife bought me a silver dot UV7BK for my birthday and sent it off to Herc to be swirled in a PAW color scheme. Of course, I'm eternally grateful to her! The body isn't back yet but I'm thinking that those silver dots are going to have to go. I already have two Uni's with pyramids (WH and BK) so I'm leaning toward not getting the original MC pyramids on it. I started thinking having a guitar with a vine would be mighty sweet. So here are the results of my last three hours of playing around in a photo editor:

Idea 1 which I really like if the guitar has a lot of yellow:


Idea 2 is what I like probably if the guitar doesn't have much yellow:


Idea 3 don't much like the pink stem:


Idea 4 once again, don't dig the pink stem:


Idea 5 might be cool on an overly pink guitar, but I don't dig the pink leaves as much:


Idea 6 again, the big pink leaves don't appeal to me unless it's an SK or such:


Any opinions on any of these? My idea is to get the guitar a bit more Jem looking. I don't own a Jem. I got my first UV less than a year after starting to play guitar (got it in '91). After all this time, 6 strings don't really appeal to me. So, I wanted to make this custom UVMC more of a Jem in it's visual styling cues. Herc did a monkey grip for me. Once I get to add the vines and colored pickups and trim pieces I'm thinking it should be pretty schweet.

Wow, they all look great. I guess you'll have to wait until you see the guitar. Post pics when you get it!

I waited to see what my swirl looked like before I choose the neck to go on it.

For me it all depends on the blend of colours in the swirl.

Hmm... in what kind of pattern? I tried a little bit of color differentiation where on the actual fret marking leaves, the bigger leaf was one color and the leaf on the other side of the stem was a different color. I didn't dig that so much. But are you thinking something like fret 1 has green, fret 3 has yellow, fret 5 has pink, etc. ?

yes, each fret leaf being a different color is what I had in mind, also a swirl vine would be cool.
