Your set is so well bookmatched I'd be tempted to not use a backstrip.

It'll look great either way!

With no backstrip, you see all the beautiful wood.

With the backstrip, some think it frames the wood nicely.

Can't go wrong with either!

Thanks for the suggestions! We went with no backstrip on this one.

Welcome I'm also now following you.
I've usually spent a few months a year in Chennai,
and as soon as The Thing goes poof!, or even semi-poof, my wife and I are flying to her fsmily home there.
i'm very curious about guitars he's made with unusual woods like tamarind and monkeypod. and his bracing design and materials? and use of high tech such as titanium truss rod, graphite bridge plate, . . . ?
Once your guitar-build chronicle has ended well, I'd love to hear your experiences of other high-end Indian or Indian-based luthiers.
As you may suspect, visiting the Bigfoot workshop is a major priority for me. Luckily my wife's family is co-based in Mumbai and New Delhi.
welcome again, as in howdy namste
