I'm loving it! Beautiful style.
I have never thought of placing individual bridge pieces on a block of stainless

Thanks for the kind words guys, camera gear is canon 5dii with a 24-105, the inside shots used bounced flash. Photography is another of my hobbies. Making the grain really pop usually requires trial and error to find the best direction to fire the flashes or direct sunlight.

One day when I get a bit more time and a more dedicated area I'll have a go at some acoustics.

I like the NG Rose Wood looks great and also smells great ,I think as a neck it needs a laminate nice choice all round .BW speaks volumes ,would agree a real camera makes the dynamic difference . :D
John ,of way too many things to do.
