Rosewood fretboard, MOP hollow block inlays, stainless steel frets, rosewood headplate (and back) as well as matching truss rod cover.

    Great work. I like the block outlines, the side markers and the open tuners. It's always nice to see creativity at work.

    That's freaking 'GORGEOUS!'

    I too love the fret markers and side markers....
    And the Signature and peg head shape are really classy looking...

    Thanks! The tort binding came from Allparts. This one has the red tort on it. If I could do anything different with this guitar, I would have laminated cream to the tort; since it's somewhat translucent, it's a big lighter in color around the body and darker around the fretboard. Not a huge deal, but it bugged me.

    The paint work was done by Stike at Rowyco Kustom Finishes. I "satinized" the back of the neck by sanding with 1200 grit and careful taping.
