    Happy New Year Everyone!

    Ok out with it Nico, what else did you do to that board? Did you use the same dyes for the inlay's and did you actually remove wood?

    Besides the old englishi did not use any dyes. To fit the Retrospect vintage correct inlays i had to remove a bit of the corners of each inlay route, as it is known, those 2001 inlays are rounded and the vintage ones when new they where sharp.

    I'm sorry Nico I didn't make my self clear, In fact I was just looking for a picture of what I was talking about, but it may have been that gold top that you did, and not this R8, the wood appears to be scooped out and really worn in some areas. So now I need to find a picture of that.

    Sorry for the confusion. :naughty:

    Thats it! 16th Fret! I don't want it to that degree however, just a hint. Although that guitar looks great there are a few aspects that are over done a bit. I don't think I have seen one that "scalloped" naturally, But it looks great.

    I have, must have been a grizzly strumming cowboy chords all day long. But it was a little wider though, was on a 61 ES-335
