 Rosettes

I create a variety of rosette designs using inlay techniques. Most often wood is the primary inlay material, but most types of shell and metal are available (please note: shell materials involve strict regulations and may not be available).

The rose insert is available for guitar, bouzouki, or oud. It adds a unique touch, and can be personalized with you design, signature, or initials.

 Inlay

I enjoy striking and unusual inlay work, and I use a wide variety of materials including bone, M.O.P., abalone, other shell, metal, woods, and stone.

Per square inch $100

 Headstock and tuners

The headstock and tuning machines play an important role in the feel and tone of an instrument. Slotted headstocks are available as an option; Gotoh 510 machines are standard.

 Bridge and tailpiece
