Wow...I love the aesthetic of this guitar. You certainly have honed your craftsmanship! I hope my #11 is half that well crafted. Congratulations!

Very Nice! I like the neck lamination design. What are the woods used? Also, did you make you own purfling? What are the position markers? Can you give us a run down?

Thanks for the nice words everyone.
As for the request of what the details are:
Black Walnut Back and sides with a mahogany wedge. Sitka spruce bear claw top, with Koa binding and rosette. Used white oak for end graph and headstock. Leaves were made of an assortment of scrap exotics. Markers were made from a piece of maple burl I believe, not sure though, just wanted them to mirror the bridge pins. Purfling is just a pre made variety from LMII.

Thanks again.

Thats a real beauty, Jeremy! I'd love to see more pictures of your heel treatment, though, it looks stunning!
