12th Fret Dead Fish Inlay

I personally would have made the head and the tail wider than the ribs to further distinguish the parts of the fish...

I also agree with Russ's above comment on a little touch-up needed via file/sand-paper to perfect some of the jaggedness of the cuts. Personally I never inlay anything without getting it's edges really smooth and PERFECT with a file first.

I'll try a bit of 220 grit sandpaper - Its really tough to get it smooth on the ribs though. I tried with a Dremel but sandpaper seems to work better. Thanks for the tip. I'll post the results when I'm done with the smoothing.

I would porbably taper the body a little more towards the tail, otherwise it might be a dead slug-with-a-pointy-head skeleton. Also the tail isn't symmetric and if I, personally, was going to make the tail asymmetrical I would make the top part larger than the bottom part.

Anyway, I think it looks pretty cool one way or another, so those are just my nitpicks.
