Did you free hand cut that out of the guitar? You have a steady hand if you did. Very nice inlay

Very beautiful inlay and superb craftsmanship! One question I have when I saw the picture of the router on the guitar box, was the guitar screaming or moaning when this happened?

Beautiful work, Johan. You must have the patience of a surgeon to do that stuff.
