The headplate of this guitar has an interesting story. The owner brought me the fingerboard of his 100+ yo cello which he had replaced. He thought I might have use for the wood, not for his guitar, but in general. When I looked carefully I noticed the wood was dyed black and there was some color inside. After I scraped it was clear it was quite similar to the color of the Macassar set i chose for the guitar so I decided to make the headplate from it.

Clips from various players and strings:
