    No lasers on Dylan's inlays - all done by hand!!

    Lol frogman is right a lot of the newer inlays have been laser cut. First Dylan sketches the inlay by hand then he sends it to his laser to remove the wood in that shape... then he will fill with different epoxies or powders or the like. When he works in mother of pearl or tahiti pearl or something like that he still needs to shape the pieces by hand I believe.

    Not really sure why it matters though because the machine, just transfers what he drew by hand into wood, doing that with a chisel is not going to make it more precise or better.

    I'm not saying I started banging my fists on my monitor shouting "let me in the group!" but.....well, maybe I am saying that.

    michealangelo could have drawn the inlays and darth vader cut them out with his lightsaber and people would still complain

    I'm only interested in inlays cut with acerbic comments

    I'd have taken the guys arm off at that price plus he was UK based too. Probably a blessing
    in disguise because with the couple I already own and with commissions that would have put
    me on 9 Daemoness. Overkill? Hell no!! Damn!! I missed that one..that's a £3K+ guitar if
    ordered today I'd reckon.

    That's more over-the-top than these inlays :)

    Hell yes, it was an awesome deal. Almost makes me wonder if he knew what he had.

    Is probably the owner likes the guitar but after the 5 years waiting things change in his life. I would imagine the longer one waits for custom order is the chance more likely to sell guitars shortly after receiving even if the guitar is incredible

    I'm at 3 years, 3 months into the wait at the moment. My guitar's body has been cut and the neck and headstock have been built and scarf-jointed. I'd expect the wait to be about 3 3/4 to 4 years right now.

    i'm 3 years, 6 months into the wait and i've got no news about the situation of my timber. there's still some details about the artwork we have to agree on though.

    Anyone whose order spanned Dylan's workshop falling apart / Phil's death is going to be longer than quoted times. But if we poll for average build times, especially for a not arted-to-infinity guitar like the seafoam, are we going to wind up closer to 3 years or to 5 years?

    probably 3 years, but closer to 5 would suit me better, personally, i can't save up money for poop :D

    Feel you on that, as much as I'd like for the wait to be done faster, I wouldn't be able to buy it out if it was done in two weeks. Really gives you time to properly plan out and save for what you want. I mean it's a completely custom guitar that will be largely unlike anything else I'm cool with that wait time.
