Baritone Guitar with Wave Inlay, May 2013

I recently finished a baritone guitar with a new inlay design.  The guitar features  curly Claro Walnut back and sides, Lutz Spruce top, Walnut neck and bindings, and Ebony head plate, finger board, and bridge.  It has a 28.04 inch scale and is tune to “B”, a fourth below normal guitar tuning.  The sustain and richness of the sound is amazing.  There’s an earlier post below that has construction shots.

My inlay is a kind of deconstruction of the famous Japanese print called “The Great Wave at Kanagawa”  by the early nineteenth-century artist Katsushika Hokusai, and other similar Japanese prints.  The inlay materials are white, black, and gold mother of pearl, laminated Agoya shell, and blue lapis reconstituted stone.
