For the rosette, I had seen photos of a number of Franklin guitars with a diamond pearl pattern that I really liked, so I asked Nick if he could go with that. I thought the pearl diamond rosette would go nicely with the “expanded” fingerboard inlay, which consists of pearl diamond inlays at the 5th, 7th, 9th, 12th and 15th frets.
Nick told me the rosette design is a favorite of his. He came up with it himself having never seen it on another guitar, but later discovered that something similar had been done on some Martin and Stauffer guitars from the 1800s.
