    seems quite metal to me :metal: lol maybe Ill add something else to the body if Ill have enough pearl. I dont want to make any fret markers or side inlays at all.

    Im thinking about white pearl. I could also use golden, but I dont want it to stand out on maple fretboard to much.

    thats strange, what hosting should I use then?

    well now I`ll have to start thinking about the bridge. Im not very happy with some moments in hipshot. First of all I want to make a larger area for saddles to contact with the base plate. On ordinary bridges they transfer vibrations to the body through stupid height adjusment screws. But, hell, its not a production guitar.. So who needs em? =) btw, I really dig Spector- style (or not Spector? well some cool bass production company) bridges where overall base plate height is adjusted by eccentric. Meh Im to lazy.
