Need an opinion for my custom UV- pic included

OK kids........ I wasn't going to show any pics of this til it was done, but it seems that I'm at an impasse......

Now that AI has ebony boards again, I'm going to order one for my UV custom the problem is that I'm totally stuck on what to get...... UVMC type pyramids?? A multi-color vine (pink/yellow/green) A yellow vine?? (I LOVE AlaskaBats yellow vine on his custom)

I know you could easily say "Get what you like best", but really.... I'm asking for honest opinions. Maybe someone has an idea that I haven't thought of.....

Here's a pic of a quick mock-up I did with my 1527 neck.....BTW... the headstock is getting swirled too. Also the green EVO's are not staying....I don't like how they look and I have NO intention of this being a UVMC clone.

anyway....here she is:

Re: Need an opinion for my custom UV

Coloured offset dots would look original, and kinda neat.

Re: Need an opinion for my custom UV

if you're after something dif from the UVMC look, i'd say:
yellow or pink vine and
yellow or pink matching pickups.

Re: Need an opinion for my custom UV

Imo a great swirl (as yours!) with a matching headstock doesnt need an inlay at all.
A nice dark ebony board is already great to look at and keeps a nice balance.

haha i feel like the fact that it belongs in so many sections kinda makes it fit here. seriously though, I would go with the pyramids or the multi-colored vines.
