Thanks Tony. I had no idea and I'm only concerned about tradition with brands like Martin and Gibson. Otherwise, anything goes...

Ray has done lots of fingerboard inlays in the past but I know he usually likes to be creative and come up with different things each time. He pretty much had carte blanche with this guitar -- except the rosette.

As I was typing the question, I realized the words, "is this something Ray has done before", were kinda foolish. The originality of the guitar is part of what makes them Kraut guitars! I think leaving the lutherie up to the luthier is the right way to go! Congrats on the progress of a beautiful guitar

With pleasure. Do you mind if I charge you $250 for shipping?

Send me a certified cheque -- or just PM me your credit card number. Once cleared, the guitar will be on its way...

For $250 it better be well packed but I accept your offer! Check your PM box for all of my bank info and credit card numbers. I also threw in my social security number just to be safe!
Information. It gets you stuff!

Hi Steve,

I just read the old emails from Ray.

The scoop is designed to show the mahogany underneath it. With the frets bridging over the gap, I think it will look very different and special indeed...

I can't wait to see the final result!
