Vine, multicolor dots or pyramids on Herc Swirl?

So I bought a Super Wizard neck tonight for my BMC project. Herc is going to swirl the headstock since I did not have a neck when I bought it from him.

My question, with the swirled headstock and body, I was thinking either going with a blue and abalone vine, Multicolor dots or a pyramids.

I have a UV777BK with pyramids and love them but since I have the pyramid thing covered, I thought about going with a vine or dots.

Thoughts?

here's the body (again)

Light blue vine with a birds eye maple board. Or a white vine with a bird eye maple board.

Blue vine would be my first choice, but tri-colour blue pyramids would like pretty sick too!

Gonna be Rosewood so i dont think the blue can be dark, lighter would look good.

Honestly, I love the look of pyramids. Just dont want to overdo it I guess.

Re: Vine, multicolor dots or pyramids on Herc Swirl?

I'd go with pyramids. I don't particularly care for the blue vine on the 7VBSL because it doesn't stand out very well. On the pyramids, I'd go for solid color like all the production guitars. Other than the abalone inlays on the black guitars, I really don't care for the odd plastic swirly ones a lot of people use.

The guitar in that picture uses two different colors of blue in the pyramid. The "cutaway" part is a lighter blue.

PYRAMIDS.
you gotta do pyramids, it will make the guitar come together bro. Blue, light blue, and white, thats the way to go.youll probably have the best custom jem ive ever seen by the end result.
