Used my newly acquired skills to outline the headstock handprint inlay then saw out then lay on the headstock for tracing.  Did the same lay on the headstock with the peghead shell procured from Luthier Supply.


The customer wants a torch style inlay on the fretboard, which I also procured from Luthier Supply.  I showed him two options, 5th fret or 12th fret, suggesting the 5th fret would be better as there will be fewer fret crossings which hide the inlay.
