I played his OM-45 at the Artisan Show. Awesome. Congrats on your start.

Will be fun to follow along.

I opted for a solid headstock as itís what Iím used to, and probably a better fit for a OOO size. Also, John has a great little piece of Mun Ebony that will make for a beautiful headstock.

The torch inlay that he uses is beautiful - are you having that inlaid onto the headstock?

No, I did not select to have the headstock inlaid. I want this guitar to showcase the beauty of the wood and Johnís impeccable craftsmanship.

The wood is indeed beautiful enough to be showcased!
