Hmm, well it may be "high concept" and an "unusual skill" but it just looks cheap to me...
Personally, I think it's beautiful. It's not like that stuff is just painted on there. Maybe it's easy to tear it down as looking "cheap", but the talent required to do something like that is anything but common, and if nothing else, it isn't more diamond/block/dot/star stuff like you see on every guitar. That does look like gw, though.
...and McKean's art, as well as many others, appeared in/on books by Neil Gaiman, which is what those inlays reminded me of. Sheesh! I was unaware the comic police were about! Soon, I'll be sentenced to 40 years in a cardboard backed plastic bag in my parent's spare bedroom.
