    This is the pickguard of a little 335 clone. The symbol is the logo of the owner's band ("Raining Sunshine"). Its a lefty....

    The guitar itself is kind of blingie, but its a girl's guitar after all

    Welcome aboard Grosso,
    I wish something I've done was good enough to go in this threads company. Someday!
    Hey I can't tell what your inlay picture is going to be.

    Wow, some pretty amazing and imaginative work you all do! Beautiful stuff

    Nothing too fancy here on this fretboard, just markers all the same shape. The multi-plys of binding was actually a lot harder

    I've done this one on a few guitars. I usually do it out of white MOP and black epoxy, but I've also done it with antique piano ivory and epoxy.
