    Yo dawg we heard you like inlays...

    So I was getting a bit bored of my stock RGA32. It's a nice playing and great sounding guitar, but it's not sexy enough. So I bought some vanson locking tuners as I want to upgrade it a little without breaking the bank (it's worth about 150), and I bought a tree of life inlay vinyl from eBay. I was 15 delivered - and took about 6 days to arrive from the U.S. Which was awesome. It's a 'dotbuster' which basically means it's been slightly modified to cover a fretboard with dot inlays.

    I know it's a bit ghetto, but I love it it's also given me gas for the new Jem jnr.

    Im tempted to do this to every guitar I own now

    Title of post is appropriate..... You need a rope-noose guitar strap and a flashing LED pick to go with it.

    I'm sorry, I do not like it. You should just learn to do your own inlay work. I have been learning, but haven't had the balls to cut into a guitar yet.

    Lol yeah I thought about it - but it's a lot of work and I just wanted something quick easy and a bit of fun. I know it's not for everyone, but they peel off if I ever want to reverse it.

    I got one of those vinyl sticker things for a 12th fret inlay on one of my guitars. If you like the way it looks and it doesn't affect how the guitar plays (it shouldn't), you do you man.

    Eh, fuck it. If you dig the look, that's the important thing. And easily reversed should you want to sell the fiddle.

    And 'just learn to do your own inlay work'?! You serious, bro?

    Lol yeah I know.

    Oh yeah by the way, I saw you had some vansons a while back and thought they were pretty decent - just wondered if you still stood by that? I'll be fitting a half decent graph tech nut so I'd assume they should hold up pretty well.
