    What animal inlays WOULD keep you from buying a guitar?


    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.

    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.

    What's genetically related to a Unicorn?

    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.

    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.
