I'm surprised no one has asked about the nut. I thought that would surely generate some puzzlement...
That is a very pretty guitR. I love the way the color themes are carried through out the neck reflecting whats in the body. And What IS that NUT. Perfect color for this instrument

Thanks guys, and no--there was no contest. (Sorry)

The nut is bone, that was the result of a failed experiment. I wanted a much lighter color, say the color of golden Koa. Turns out that bone is difficult to stain lightly. There are pores within which soak up stain at a much greater degree, leaving your nice golden color riddled with darker little holes. To cover those, we kept going darker and darker, until you see the color as a uniform dark brown.
Put in its slot, we were pleasantly surprised with the look.
It's a keeper. Now the question: do we stain the saddle????

Steve

Hope you enjoy!
Seriously good playing and a great sounding guitar. Full marks all around
