Post some pics of your favorite custom guitar inlays (no dots or blocks!)
My favorite is the invisible one.
Double post? http://www.sevenstring.org/threads/favorite-guitar-inlays.327397/
I also greatly prefer the look of woodgrain over the look of woodgrain with dead mollusc shells pressed into it, personally.
If I rule out blank wood, though, here are some cool ideas:
(shh - these are actually stickers) alembic did this more real and better-looking, but also crazy expensive:
Might look better if the dark parts were left bare wood, but still a nifty idea.
I also thought that that Steve Vai DNA inlay was pretty cool.
There are a lot of inlays I've seen around here, like light-up bats or crazy intricate things like water droplets and stuff that look amazing, but are a little over-the-top for my personal tastes on my own instruments.
Oh yeah sorry for that double post, my bad!
I like the technicality of these, but if I have a choice I'd prefer more minimalist/modern styled inlays
I wonder if someone thought they were asking for melting clocks when he said "Can I get a Salvador Dali inlay?"
Kind of like ...
Or did the dude actually want Dali's face inlaid on the fretboard?!
I love Larry Robinson's work, over the top as it may be. He's one of those artists who is so top of his field it makes you want to give up. Among others, he worked on Martin's millionth guitar.
I think it was a custom showcase piece. William Laskin does a lot of portraiture inlaying.
Pretty much Daemoness.
wouldn't play this...just hang it on the wall. a work of art for sure.
MOP & Paua heart birds, hollow birds, abalone birds, etc will always look super sexy to me.
Daeomness does stunning work on necks.
That said, i REALLY like the PRS Brush Stroke Birds
This, This is it.
I'll go along with that, I absolutely love that one.
Just went here to post this one, you've been way faster This one is the best, ever.
As much as I appreciate the amount of craftsmanship involved in this inlay, I find this absolutely over the top, imo.
I have a thing for black block inlays on a maple board with a black binding - Geddy Lee j-bass style:
Someday I'll do an hsh surf green strat with a neck like that. Pearl pickguard and black pickups and hardware.
I’m pretty reserved with inlays. I like offset dots, none at all, and for flashy style I really only like PRS birds. Not a fan of logo inlays at the 12th ala Chapman, Solar, ESP, K(iesel) etc.
Shit, posted in the other thread, I'll copy it here.
The forever classic Daemoness water drop. It will always be my favourite inlay:
The Viking long ship ones that he did also serve as desktop backgrounds for me. Absolutely incredible pieces of art.
