    Anyone have any cool/interesting body or fretboard inlays to show off?

    To me, these are not just interesting because it's unusual to do contrasting wood block inlays, but also very attractive:[​IMG]

    Look on Brian Barrett's site, www.thelowend.net . I also think this bass is on Dude's site. (the dudepit)

    You really want to see some exotic inlays, just go through the featured Custom Vault on the Alembic web site. Some of the inlay work on these instruments is unreal!

    Absolutely, stunning, BassSax!!! In a way, I don't know how you could sell `em.
    But then again, musical instruments are sonic art first. And only you know when to move on.
