Sergio somewhat dared me to start this thread from his 'creepy' birds thread.

So..., what animal inlays WOULD keep you from buying a guitar? (Take note, no brands mentioned)

I'll start - 'Polecat' - North American of course, not European.

...and don't start making lines about 'Unladen Swallows’ and the like. (Oops, Ignore that bird reference)

Who’s Next?

Had a pet 'Pole Cat' when I was a kid. He was awesome. AFTER we had his scent glands removed.

Animal inlay that would keep me from buying a guitar?

A donkey.

Baboons

Giraffe (Could be difficult!)

I'd happily have a fretboard with the Big Cats as inlays.

Dolphins, Unicorns, Wolves, or any thing genetically related. I like flowers, stars, and snowflakes what can I say?

Oh! Unless it was a combination of a dolphin soaring over a rainbow while the unicorn was goring the wolf... I'd rock that.

A Hobbit!

Yeah, I know. Not an animal. But I still would not buy a guitar with a hobbit inlay on it...

To reiterate from the other thread...

Anything with an indiscernable profile. I was traumatized when I found out that the turtle on my 24th fret was really an owl. :eek:

Single cell organisms - out.
Anything in the larval stage - out.
Spectators at a football game, as seen from a blimp - out.
Snot Sea Cucumbers - out!

Haha when people ask what that is on my 24th I act completely shocked that they don't know and say something loudly along the lines of "thats a screech owl on a branch B....! anymore questions?" Then they realize that I had to look it up myself the first time too lol

I'd say that wouldn't want a guitar with SHEEP on it. Too soft and fluffy. A tiger head inlay would be cool

Birds. The eagle on the headstock is cool, but otherwise they're way too much for me.

I don't know if I'd buy any guitar with some sort of animal inlaid all over it. Not my style.

Even if he was separated limb by limb and organ by organ across the whole fretboard? :flute:

I wouldn't buy one with a rabbit or antelope, but I would buy one with a jackalope. I wouldn't buy one with a tiger or lion, but I would buy one with a liger. I wouldn't buy one with a cat or dog but I would buy one with Cat-Dog. But I definitely would not buy one with one of these:

Panda.
I heard 'on the internet' that for every Panda inlay used, a real Panda in the wild dies. So, that's not good.

That is a poodle........ as far as inlays....any animal is fine...I would not play a guitar with Nancy Grace inlays..The nostrils alone would throw off the intonation............

Mike Deely did those inlays for the guitar's owner.
