Re: Custom guitar on the way!!!

Very sweet looking! It looks like you're going with an ebony fretboard? I'd make sure that the stem part of the vine is a bright maple. I like it a lot the way you have it, although if it were me I'd use real MOP for the large leaves and get a bit more color than the stock Ibanez plastic stuff. For the small leaves, I'd stick with abalone, but get much higher quality, more colorful stuff than the standard Ibanez. Something like the stuff Suhr uses for their logos. I might go for some sort of abalone headstock logo as well.

Re: Custom guitar on the way!!!

That looks cool. I see a coffee-colored flame maple for the inlay to tie into the flame body, but just about anything will look good.

Re: Custom guitar on the way!!!

The only thing I like is vine inlay.
And that input jack in front of a guitar always looked weird and ugly to me.

Re: Custom guitar on the way!!!

Personally if it were me I would put the jack on the edge of the body and space out the controls more. Also would get rid of the pickguard and the inlay all together. There is a lot going on there, but if you like it it's your custom. As for an inlay material that is similar to abalone and pretty bright you could do paua it is quite nice. Here is what it looks like.

Re: Custom guitar on the way!!!

I like it! Not so much for the "Vine" Inlay myself. Would look really great w/matching HS Veneer to match the Body. Fine looking concept geetar though!

Hahaha. Well i think the whole concept is one of those things where you either hate it or you love it.

Is that Paua Material very expensive?? compared to abalone
