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.
WOW. The attention to detail is awesome. I'm wiping the drool off my keyboard as the pics come in! Thanks for sharing!!!!
