Something neat and interesting I came across...

After taking some pics of my JEM7VWH, I was staring at this shot of my neck, and noticed something neat.

If you look closely and use your imagination, doesn't it seem like the fret inlays are the fret numbers, just reversed?
Here's what I'm talking about.
The fret numbers I put in teal. Use your imagination!

Actually, using even less imagination, something I saw when I started inlaying, (ironic because the vine predates Steve Vai)



Turn the V's sideways, and really imagine the A, one capital E and one lowercase e

Id imagine it was somwhat purposeful. Who knows what the early vine design was like and developed into. Is this true for the j-customs with the really weird vine inlay too?

Actually all the vines i've seen seem to say "Buy Me" (but the m is upside down sideways, the B is rotated 264 degrees, and the y is actually not there)

I swear I didn't do this. Absolutely promise I didn't do this. I never touched it. I never downloaded a Jem 10 neck image, and then I never went into Photoshop and altered the image for my own pathetic amusement. I never went anywhere near a computer. What's a computer anyway? I know nothing.
