Hi Krefett,

You've seen it before, but since you asked.

30th Anniversary Model  (C 10BZ)

Very fine examples, absolut  +1

ST: Who is the lady looking in the mirror back over 30 years of guitar building? Have you an idea? 

Walkerman: Must be a one of a kind inlay - never seen it before! Has it a history? 

Thank you very much for the answers!

Krefett. I had very much wanted a Rose Lady in my collection, but I have stopped buying new additions since my retirement, so unless I can trade for one, it will not ever happen.

Hi Ponte,

nice to meet you again!

Thanks for your inlay, love it - it is clean and clear.  Good looking with the wood tuner bottoms.

Here is an early inlay from Wendy for you!

Best wishes to spain!

The knobs are white ivoride ( Plastic ) on gold tuners. I love the look of the tuners with the inlay and gloss finish. Here is the back of my guitar

Well Jim beat me to it for the style but seeing as I bothered to take the picture here it is.
Even though it looks way better in real life.

The hands and feet always look a bit weird on those inlays  Those are probally the most difficult parts to make...thanks for all the pics!
