green meanie lions claw?

OK, I am doing a green meanie copy, the sticker'd one. would you or would you not put a lions claw on it? The sticker'd green meanie had it routed out and painted black.
I have a feeling that the original lions claw was routed out due to Vai's endorsement with Ibanez as it was to be included on the new guitars and he couldn't leave it on the green meanie (a charvel)? just speculation, but back to the question? should it be on the copy or not?

Thanks in advance.....

Seems obvious, doesn't it? If you're copying the stickered Green Meanie then it has to be routed out? Otherwise what's the point of going to the trouble of doing a copy?

good point... it is how I felt, someone else told me it should be there? just trying to get a feel for what would be the best.
