    ok, I am designing a bear inlay... it has to be very simple with not too many seperate pieces...
    I've done this so far...(in photoshop)

    (OK to EDIT!)

    Can you even tell it's a bear? can you think of anything that would help it?

    I've been staring at it too long trying to come up with something that works.... :confused:

    any ideas/designs would be greatly appreciated! :D

    Also, it doesn't just have to be the head.. it can be the full body. (the only problem is, it has to be small.... so I may only be able to do the head.)

    The bear looks pretty cool.:thumbup:

    What's the significance of the bear?

    The name of my guitar business is "Sorbera Guitars" Sorbera(my last name)... reminds a lot of people I talk to about Bears... so Bears it is! :D

    That, and I couldn't think of anything else... :er:

    That could easily be your company logo! :thumbup:

    Do you have a sticker you put inside the guitar? You could put the logo on that too!

    great idea!
    I've been looking for a logo. :D

    Also, just thought of something.... instead of on the fingerboard... I could inlay it on the headstock. :thumbup:

    Great idea Chris. :)

    ok....im a little confused.....is this still for an inlay or a logo?!....also what is the inlay for?.......If its the logo then the headstock is a better idea....with the one on the fretboard, it would have to be cropped quite a bit and maybe boxed off with the full company name underneath...........i actaully quite like the bear tho!.....think you should give him a chance man! Would be interesting to see how the headstock works tho....post it up and i'll give you all the logo advice i can :thumbup:

    ahhhh, that's what I was missing!!!

    I was trying to figure out how to fit that head in there without squishing it or something.... but the paw print idea is great. :thumbup:

    just reading your words, then seeing the smilie guy's eyebrows, and all... i just have a hard time taking anything seriously....

    love the sig... and i wanna see the bear when your done..k?

    i think the way you have it, and put a paw print on the left hand side would just be killer.....

    i gotta see that...
