THE BLACK BOMBER. I received a neck form a old 70's P Bass what belongs to a ripped up black bass body. The ower was restoring the heck but keeping the body in the relic state and wanted me to turn it into the black bomber complete with retro-girl from the 60's. This is how it turned out.

This Goddess fretboard was done for Mike Curtis of Scottsville, NY. The inlay was added to a Warmoth neck and is made of Gold and White Mother of Pearl, Blue Jean Lapis, Banded Malichite, Red Abalone, Silver Fantail, Koa Wood (the hair) and 50,000 year old Mamoth Ivory for the skin. I think it's VERY cool. Mike had this to say, "Neck arrived this afternoon and it is just stunning. After admittedly tearing at the box like a kid on Christmas, finally seeing the fretboard and cover in person; they are beautiful. I have it on my desk next to me and I can't stop looking at it. I love the Goddess and I think she came out beautifully. Awesome job, man. Extremely pleased that I was able to get this done. Thanks a ton!"

Not a real fancy design, but a great use of different materials. This is the first fretboard for Smoke Box Instruments' new .50 Caliber guitar. This is a beautiful AAAA flame maple neck and matching fretboard. The stars are made of Bocote wood. The gold wood with the dark chocolate grain look absolute awesome against the maple. I love the thinking here. There are too many fretboard markers out there just made of Mother of Pearl or Mother of Toilet Seat. This is really a breath for fresh air. My hat is off to Brian and Paul over at Smoke Box for having the guts to do something different. Check out thier guitars. Warmoth, Custom Guitar, Fretboard Inlay, Vine of Life. Guitar Inlay
