I posted a few weeks ago that I was going to get an '87 RG550 that I want to add a booster to. I got the guitar, the booster is on order. Here's another question though: Where would I look to get custom inlays? The fretboard already came scalloped and it has the typical black dots but I was thinking something cooler, like some sort of vine or maybe even sharkfins or something. My main problem is that the fretboard is maple, so they have to black or dark. Any suggestions on who to contact?

This is a no-brainer. Look no further!

I sent Jeremy the neck off my '87 RG550, and had him pull the black dots and put in different colored ones. It looks cool to me. Definitely check his site though, he does all the standard stuff and I'm sure he'll work with you if you want something unique.

Also, don't limit yourself to black inlays just b/c it's a maple board. I've seen other types---abalone and so forth that look great.
