Oh man, that's nice. Indeed, the best part is the stars in the customer's eyes. Your customer is gonna flip.
And, that pickguard is a perfect match for the snakewood.

Well done, you!

Steve

She's a beauty Lance!

When I first saw this picture, I thought "Oh. no! Scratches!" Then, I realized it was the reflection of the strings.

[QUOTE=John How] Very nice Lance, John is getting a real winner. Is that purfling from BobC? I got some that lloks like that and had a little trouble bending the sandwhich without getting wrinkles in the inside lines.[/QUOTE]

Thanks John, indeed it is, Bob put this combo together specialy for this guitar. Hes a good man!
I actualy bent this with out heat, just wiped a little water on it and it behaved well. Might be the soft bend of a dreadnough.

[QUOTE=Serge Poirier] Lance, awesome workmanship, i especially admire people who can inlay such a long name on a peghead and this brings a question if you don't mind. Do you have your name made already cut or do you cut it yourself and inlay it?

If you do cut it yourself, it must take a lot of patience to both cut it with a jeweller saw and then scribe it on the peghead to then inlay it?

How many hours just to do that please?[/QUOTE]
Thanks Serge.

I order my names precut from Custom Inlay, its usualy takes about an hour to cut the pcoket and inlay the pearl.

Thanks Michael,
John How helped me design this bridge. Im not sure how orginal it is, ive seen many with the flared wings like mine has, I hope that i have changed it enough to look somewhat different.

Lance,

Perfection as always

That back just seems to shimer and shine with real depth.

Wow, Lance, knock-your-socks-off, take-your-breath-away beatiful! That burst will really look nice through the pickguard.

I'd sure like to be that customer!
