Warmoth Custom Inlay Wizard Guitar

See More Pictures Below

This testimonial project was commisssioned by Maurice Brines of North Carolina. He was building himself a custom guitar made from a Warmoth body and neck. This is a carved top VW body with a killer Koa wood top and a Koa wood neck with a rosewood finger board. Maurice wanted to make a theme guitar. He presented me with several designs he had found or customized himself. The head stock was left up to me to design. Through many phone and email conversations we have jointly created the "Merlin" guitar. At least that's what I call it. It finished the guitar himself.

Here is what Maurice had to say: "For anyone interested in getting inlay work done, it is one of the best things you can do for enhancing the look of an item and increasing the item's worth, if done properly. I did my homework and talked with many inlay artists and even visited some of them to discuss my thoughts on getting some inlay work done on a new guitar I'm building. Hands down, I made the right decision with Shark Inlay.

Working with Cliff Suttle was not only a pleasure, but was fun. He has the ability to understand what you imagine and bring it to life. Not only was his manner professional, but he performs his work to the highest degree. He will customize any inlay from your discussion with him or will work with your drawings and suggest enhancements that you may not have even considered. Bottom line, Cliff is an exceptional inlay artist with the talent for taking time to understand your needs and building on them. He will walk you through his process and will not inlay anything until you are satisfied with what the final inlay looks like. Cliff even takes the time to send digital pictures to you prior to the inlay being completed. Cliff has an exceptional talent and a superior personality to help you with the "dream" inlay you've always wanted, but were afraid something would get messed up. Don't worry with Shark Inlay, they are truly there for you ! Like many people, I was very concerned with sending my guitar neck and body off to someone I didn't know. Now, that I have it back, I'm very, very happy that I did ! "

And, of course, what fun would this be without more and more and more pictures. UPDATED: 2/3/2003 - we finally have pictures of the finished guitar back from Maurice. Wow, what a guitar. Maybe I should have kept it. :-)
