Default Plates and Necks

Here are few other things...

I noted earlier that we changed the fretboard to Macassar Ebony. Now the question is do we change the headplate to match? The choices are staying with the original black ebony or going with an Indian Rosewood headplate. Below I show them dry and wet with naptha. The wet pic doesn't show it very well, but the EIR is a very good match. The black ebony would look fine, too. Black goes with everything. Just depends if I want the headplate to match the fretboard and bridge or to stand alone. I am not sure yet...

Here is a quick video showing the grain figure in the unshaped neck.
