Default Rosette & Purflings

You can now begin to see how the curly Koa top purfling will visually tie together with the Koa accents in the radial grained Brazilian Rosewood rosette. Not a traditional “blingy” look like shell or marquetry, but I think that these hardwood accents will make an elegant and handsome look. The small shim in the purfling near the continuous cutaway neck junction is there to ensure the binding junction smoothly transitions into the neck.
