Probably a good thing you didn't order a Stambaugh until now RLK or I probably would have been picking your brain about design ideas with my builds. You have a great eye for detail and aesthetics.
It seems your basses having been turning out just fine without my input.

But seriously that improves the design a lot think I'll put the North Star on the 12 fret the "s" star on the ramp. I'll email Chris soon about it
I'm glad it was helpful.
Truth is, I want yours finished so he can get back to mine!
A suggestion on the "s" star:
You may want to make those curls less fine.
Otherwise the ends will likely get rendered invisible or shortened during the inlay process.
Speaking of inlays, it's funny (ironical funny);
For the RS, we decided on block markers that that range from the edge of the board to halfway between the E and A strings.
Then the binding on the outer edge.
For all the anticipated challenges on this project, Chris says those blocks have been the most difficult time-consuming element.
Just goes to show sometimes its the elements of least concern that become the big hurdles.
