Does anyone have experience with the pearl and abalone veneers that are available? How does the process compare with using MOP blanks? I assume the blanks are thicker and require a more elaborate cutting process...
they say the veneer can be cut with sharp scissors or an xacto knife.

Is is just a matter of routing shallower cavities for them? Can one still add engraved details to the veneer?

I am getting ready to build my first instrument and could use some advice.
