The latest guitar I made is a riff on a gibson Les Paul Junior double cutaway…I made mine a bit heavier with a quilted maple top, tortoise shell binding, and a neck thru body construction. It also features my most ambitious attempt at inlay yet… a purpleheart dragon inset with mother of pearl scales, spines and teeth, and a contrasting copper wire accent.
I made the mistake of staining the body before setting the inlay, and when I sanded the inlay flush it sanded away some stain, which was a simple mistake and really should not have happened.
