Thanks John! The whiter inlay is Holly and the golden is curly Maple. The trick is to do the inlay on the overlays before they are glued to the guitar. That way you can get a jewelry saw in there. It is fine work though and took me about 3 weeks. If I were to do it again it would take about 3 weeks .

Thanks for all the comments!
