Nick is putting his signature back-stripe on my guitar. He constructed it out of a strip of the African Blackwood, surrounded with the figured Maple he's using for the bindings. The ends of AB are cut to a sort of arrow head shape; the maple strips are mitered and glued to form a point that fits the end of the AB. The maple is bent with a soldering iron. Nick has a special jig which he uses to glue the Maple along the edge of the African Blackwood. When the stripe has dried, he scores around the inlay, and then routs a groove in the back of the guitar and inserts the back-stripe.
