    I'm fairly certain I saw him say one or two times on Facebook that he does it by laser and then injects the cavities with the molding, then more than likely sands it flush.

    No way in hell he found the time to do THAT inlay by hand, while simultaneously juggling several guitars in the current batch, as well as working on installing THREE evertunes on that guy's guitars. That work would be way too tedious. Seemingly damn near impossible, really.

    ^ not only that, you humanly can't be that accurate and carve out of wood your exact drawing.

    Plus it's still metal as phvck to use lasers. Artwork is still created by his hands, though, so really it's a laser guided reproduction of his mind & hands.

    Use whatever tools are necessary to realize your vision :shrug:

    If it were possible to do it accurately enough by hand, he probably would.

    Given the intricate portraits of Christ that he's created with paint scraping (which surely must be the most tedious and demanding method EVER), I'm pretty sure whatever method Dylan chooses is beyond reproach. He could force a slave army of cockroaches to eat the intricate patterns into the wood and then crap into the inlay (the cockroaches crap, not Dylan :lol:) and it would still be the most awesome thing ever.

    ...as if Dylan's guitars weren't already metal enough.

    He can, it just takes time. A lot of time. So the laser streamlines the process and maintains accuracy. That way, more guitars get done!

    I still think the images of Christ were otherworldly (no pun intended), given how you just described them. It would be really cool to see a video of him making a guitar like that.

    ^ I think Dylan willed that tree into existence. Can't wait to see that one.

    That's like...just a normal piece of cocobolo :lol:

    I'm sure it'll make a great Cimmerian, but I'm not going to freak out about it. He could just keep churning those out all year if there was demand for it.

    Wow, i never realised Cocobolo had such massive amounts of colour variation. That looks incredible. Can't wait to see how that turns out.

    The lighter part is the sapwood, you can get some REALLY crazy stuff depending on where the piece was sawn!
