Lightbulb Flame Project Begining!

Hey Guys-
I just bought this body to make a new toy.
I'm trying to decide one a few things and want to get some opinions and ideas from the community.
What color(s) pickup would look cool to you guys?
What fretboard and inlay ideas do you guys have?
Waht hardware color, Chrome, Black or Cosmo?
I have some ideas of my own, I don't want to influence anyone by telling yet.
I just want to hear what you guy think too.
Thanks
Sebastian

Re: Flame Project Begining!

i think u should go for black/gold hardware.
as for inlays, id suggest the disappearing pyramids, in red, yellow and white.
id suggest u dont go with a maple fretboard, i think the light colors of the body wont look all too great with a maple fretboard.
for the headstock, id go with either:
black headstock with a red ibanez logo
red headstock with a yellow logo
i really have no idea what colour the pickup should be.
these are just my ideas
the body looks great, by the way

Chrome bridge, blue humbucker. Flame maple fretboard and something else related to fire as inlays...

Re: Flame Project Begining!

What do you think of this neck?
or Maple, or Vine, or something else?

White direct mount pickup if possible. Chrome ring if not. Chrome bridge.
Maple neck. Red fret dots. Black headstock with standard logo.

Re: Flame Project Begining!

First off.......

FREAKIN' AWESOME!!!!

NEXT:

Black hardware.....cosmo second, but pure black would be best (it's the least prominent color on the body)

Black pup either on its own, or an emg type cover that can be painted to match the body,

Bright screaming yellow vol. knob....period.

I really like that neck, but I agree with Euphor that this guitar needs a flamey maple with cool flame like inlays in the same colors as the pyramids.

black or matching head...either is perfectly fine, but you need to change the shape to resemble a flame.............TOTAL CUSTOM LOOK.
