    Hey there guys, I'm thinking of getting an inlay on the 12th fret of my custom. Any of you have any suggestions ? (keep in mind the guitar has fanned frets :hbang:)
    Thanks !

    Don't you think it would make sense to give us a bit of info about you? Likes/dislikes etc.

    I could suggest getting "I go to work on Sunday" written in Bacon-like font, but you might be Jewish...

    :lol: you're right, I'm not Jewish though :scratch: It should be classy and not overdone, something like some cool meaningful symbol that has a meaning ( would hate to end up with something that says spicy tuna roles:lol:)

    Yeah, but it has to have meaning to you...

    Something representing YOUR beliefs, views, ethnicity, heritage, etc.

    This is sort of like asking people what tattoo you should get. You need a good idea of what you want before good suggestions can be made.

    I said that I really like ancient symbols, but I did think of getting a coral inlay.

    I have a small collection of Bismuth crystals so I'm quite fond of the Alchemy symbol for it (and it's odd resemblance to infinity):
