I’m kind of a restless spirit in this regard. The end result is no two guitars appear the same. When I start a guitar, I start by picking the requested materials and laying them out on our ping pong table. I then begin to sort through my ever increasing pile of hardwoods and veneers until an scheme pops into my head. The common thread from guitar to guitar is that I use naturally colored and figured hardwoods and veneers for lines, tiles, herringbones, solid rings, and simple mosaics.
