This is an incredible amount of work and patience....not my cup of tea but damn is it impressive
Yeah saw that yesterday - I'm as interested in his way of doing fret slots with the rotary multi-tool and that little router style base though, looks like a useful technique...
Insane amount of work, just imagine how much a commission like that would cost.
Also TIL the term "marquetry art" from this - not sure why he's against it though, all the examples I can find on image search look incredible.
clearly you've never seen Harvey Leach's inlays, or William Laskin's work
I know right? Google Larry Robinson while you're at it!
Edit: fwiw I really admire Ben from Crimson guitars too. He puts a lot into his craft - most of the builds he does are not quite to my taste, but he has made lots of cool guitars over the years.
I'm not trying to poo poo Ben's work( which is admirable), just trying to show people how far inlay work can go. Larry Robinson is fantastic.
I almost fell out of my chair when the finished guitar was a melted BC Rich Bich body with a faux Parker headstock. Dude has loads of skill but his customers have horrific taste.
I think the shape is actually alright with the headstock, but those inlays (which look amazing) look terrifying on that guitar.
I just totally thought it was going to be an acoustic fretboard for some reason.
