Default Guitar Progress Pictures

Here are a couple progress shots of the Bloodwood back and Black MOP/Black Ebony inlay I'm working on:







Bloodwood has an amazing amount of chatoyance. Using the smoothing plane is the best way to prep the top for finish because it wonderfully shows that shine.

The Black Ebony Art Deco back inlay is centered with black mother-of-pearl. I like that at one angle it looks like the Black Ebony and then suddenly flashes to life with a change of the light.
