    Does anyone know what the official (or unofficial) name of this headstock inlay is? Just curious. Thanks.

    I would like to replace my inlays on my Ibanez S570 with simple centered dots. The existing inlays are thin lines placed off center across the whole fret. Does anyone know if there are inlay stickers that cover the fret completely? Meaning, that I get a sticker that not only imitates the inlay...

    I have a beautiful alvarez I'm looking to sell or trade. It's the best playing alvarez I've owned, with a very low and fast action, feels almost like an electric. It has the original hard shell case and is no longer in production so it's becoming rare (rare because it's nice, not just because...

    Hi there folks, I have one question for all of you. Is there a stock JEM neck with rosewood fingrboard that has pyramid inlays on it. Not any custom fretboard or speciall order. Just regular serial production neck. An if there is, on what JEM model I can find it. Thanks in advanced Cheers!

    hi there, i read a thread here about Clearcoating fretboards; working on a fretboard with a lot of MofP inlaying i wanna clear coat it. should i block the fret slots ? does anyone know how Fender does this on their telecaster so that the fret slots are not filled with clear coat ? or do they...

    So, a guitar I like has some inlay work on the body and I'm not digging it, but I like the rest of the guitar. I wanted to remove the inlay on the body, but wasn't sure how to do it. I imagine it's glued in and I could put a warm/hot iron on it and after a few minutes, then I could see about...

    In 1977, I started playing guitar. I had always been fascinated listening to music as far back as I could remember. The same year, I started getting into pen & inks, doing cool fantasy drawings of castles dragons and other medieval art. The following year, I joined my first band... so many jobs...

    Does anyone have a picture of a fretboard to scale that I can put in photoshop and put my ideas for inlays in to send to a luthier? Thanks guys!

    Does aftermarket inlay stickers harm the fretboard in any way? Since they got glue materials.... Is it harmful for rosewood fretboards?

    Anyone use his pyramid set with a 7 string? I am assuming it should be ok since the dot spacing should be the same just centered different, but it never hurts to ask. And yes the next swirl I am going to attempt is a PAW Universe clone if anyone wants to know LOL.

    Is there any pink on the first 2 pyramids (3 fret and 5th fret). based on pictuers I would say NO... But I would like to know for sure from someone who owns one.. It is hard to tell for sure in pictures. Thanks,

    So I just picked up the very pretty guitar in this thread... http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f28/fs-ibanez-jem-bfp-project-108747.html Of course I will post more pics when it arrives. Until then I was wondering if seeking out an original neck would be a good idea, or if the 550 neck will hold...

    Hey guys I'm looking for a neck to fit my Jem brmr. I hate the standard dot Inlays on it and want to replace it with a vine of life inlayed neck! Thanks for looking guys! :lol:

    I've got GAS, and I've decided only a JEM will satsify it this time. I know I want a model with the vanishing pyramid inlays. What I don't know is what models came with it, and what price ranges I'd be looking at to get one. A well played guitar with finish damage doesn't bother me, nor does a...

    Ok guys, i think I am gonna buy an RG350MYE. Love that color! I'm gonna block the trem since I don't use it. I was thinking about going with green Dimarzio pickups and knobs. I was wondering if anyone knows someone who could remove the black dot inlays on the maple fretboard and replace them...

    So I have owned a Les Paul copy for a while that I bought with the express intention on turning into a Zakk Wylde rip off, but with some differences. It was completed in 2004. http://nick-coumbe.fotopic.net/p7192952.html Anyhoo, the inlays were cheap plastic and not really in keeping with the...

    I'll be upfront, I LOVE shark fin and shark tooth inlays. I have no idea if other Ibanez fans agree or not, maybe everyone else just thinks their gaudy throw-backs to the 80s. I disagree. I think those fins and teeth serve as a powerful element of product differentiation. You will never find...

    So, I've been doing some looking around on the bay and I found some products that seem interesting to me. I thought maybe I can use it to spice up my strat. They're inlay stickers that look like the Tree of Life Inlay on a Jem. I emailed the seller and he told me that this well deft. work...
