Which model of Universe?
If it's the UV777BK, then I can help.
I emailed Jeremy (LGM) about this, as I was preparing to do this to my UV. He advised me that, in his experience, the pyramid inlays are very shallow, only about .040" (forty-thousandths of an inch) deep... I asked his, as I recall a picture posted quite some time back of a fully scalloped 777BK - it was without inlays at that point.
The scallops were deep on that one.
If you stay shallow with your scalloping, you'll be find. Follow my WWW link below, and scroll to the bottom of the page; there's a link to some pictures. Click on the shot of my UV on that page; you'll see that it's scalloped, and still has its inlays... =]
I was very careful...
Hope this helps.
