Rosettes, Cocobolo, and Inlay

So I just finished up one of the headplates for the ziricote twins that are still not out of my shop yet :(. It is purfled and everything//.This is Jake Rye's beautiful cocobolo back for his GA. I LOVE COCOBOLO! Quite frankly I think it is as beautiful as wood can come - and consistently so.
And here are all the installation shots of Feldman's rosette. I used segemented pearl and ebony for the soundhole binding.

Been a while

So I have a lot to post. Below you will see the beginnings of a beautiful new mahogany bass that I am working on with custom single coil pickups. I will also be debuting a new 'body' pickup in conjunction with the standard electromagnetic coils,
The pictures below are all the recent developments on DGoodrich's bryleigh series. Very earthy guitar, but is coming along really well!
