Green Fretboard Inlays

I guess this is the right place to ask this. I'm looking for a source to get green fretboard inlays, like the ones in the UV7BK - the one everyone seems to think is ugly. I'm making a 550 to mock one of those, complete with a set of green PAF Pros from an old Jem, and I want to do green inlays and headstock logo, but I have a source for the logo already.

Really, all you need is some green plastic about 1/8" thick.
Stew mac has some pre cut stuff, but no green.,_p...ut_inlays.html
I'll keep an eye out for green material that might work.

a clear inlay with green paper underneath is the norm, like the pyramids on the 777's...

Thanks. I checked Stew Mac and Warmoth and anyone else I could think of, no one had green. I was kind of surprised that Universal Jems didn't have any listed at all.


That may be the way to go, I think I saw some clear ones somewhere, thanks.
