Pyramid color suggestions?

I am building a custom RG with a candy apple red finish that will have a black fingerboard and chrome hardware, and I am going to do the pyramid inlays. Any suggestions for the colors of the pyramids? I was thinking maybe white pearloid dissapearing to mirror red. Thanks!!

Pyramid inlays are probably my most favorite of all time; they look so cool on th early Vai models!

Yeah, that would look great. Just be careful to get the right shade of red so it doesn't clash with the body.

Thanks for the suggestions!! The red, white and blue sounds interesting. I don't think I could get two different shades of red with a mirror bottom. Here are the colors I have to choose from:

I wouldn't order from that guy on e bay based on what I have seen of his work. There is a thread on here somewhere that has some detailed pictures in it.

You might want to check with Chris Woods before you decide.

Thanks for the heads up!! I actually just order the inlay from him and have another outfit cut the inlay on the fingerboard and install it.
