    I have a guitarist friend who wants me to do some inlay work on his fretboard. He wants the inlays to be bright red. Don't ask me why, I don't know.

    Anyways, what material can I use that is, as he described it, "blood red" :confused: I don't want to use something that won't hold up or will look like crap after some use. Any ideas, options, or insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Tell him to go buy a Gibson Voodoo, or some other metal-esque guitar

    He does play the emo-metal stuff and he's only 16. :help:

    I'm trying to give him what he wants I just don't know how to give it to him. I tried to get him to let me use regular MOP, but he didn't like the idea.
