    Thanks all for the good input! I always appreciate the thoughts of others after completing an instrument. Andrew, the logo is mother of pearl; it's just the varnish that alters the color a bit.

    Very, very nice Robb!

    It's cool to see that you haven't completely lost interest in the traditional style while also creating the unique instruments from the alternative tonewoods.

    I love it all!

    I've used up my list of superlatives on all of Robb's other awesome instruments,but the 'Fern' headstock on this one is mouthwatering, & the rest of it is just as good - sheer class !,
