Can we start a list of artists that can craft beautiful inlays?
Any suggestions who can do a Tiger plate?

I would highly recommend Larry Robinson - he has literally written to book on inlay. Martin & Co. asked him do the inlay for their 750k and 1 millionth guitars! Pretty amazing stuff.

I felt the price was more than fair as well. More info: http://robinsoninlays.com/

Here are the two cover plate he did for me, and a few other shots of the work he did on my project (sorry getting quota error trying to upload - here are links):

I would not hesitate to use Cliff at Shark Inlay for any job. For my own J-caster, however, Craig Lavin did the headstock and Ron Thorn the Tiger plate.

Great looking axe man! That headstock inlay blows me away - looks awesome!

Craig Lavin did some outstanding work for Luthier John Kinnaird for an OM.

I had a simple inlay done by Shark and I'm quite happy with the results!

Phil Gawenda of Phiga built this for me and did this great skull and roses inlay.

Anyone ever try inlay stickers? Not to discount real inlays like Sharks as I would love to have that done, but as a cheaper and more DIY option I was looking at inlay stickers.

Looking at these there are a few nice options like the wolf etc.

Have no clue how cheesy this would look.

Cheers!
