On the Martin 1930 OM-45 Deluxe Authentic, the flower design is routed into the Adirondack top. The pick guard is is cut to fit over the pearl that has been inlaid into the top. Once the pearl is glued into the top, the pick guard is...

Re: Is Indian rosewood going to be the next brazilian in value? (reply)
I've been thinking of building myself a Indian rosewood dread and I can say that once the Cities thing came out, it seems that the price of IR sets jumped up 20%. That's just what I have observed by shopping for IR sets.

For one thing ...in most cases, whenever a rosewood tree is legally harvested in India, another seedling is planted nearby to ensure continual renewal of Indian forest resources.  Supply is much less an issue than most other rosewoods .

Once the kinks are worked out moving IRW across borders will be a routine, everyday occurrence. It may limit its usage on cheaper instruments, but on higher grade/value guitars, it will change little in value or perception. The price...

Re: Is Indian rosewood going to be the next brazilian in value? (reply)
I think the volume of EIR would have the opposite effect. There is an abundance of EIR that may end up just lying around as builders must choose alternative woods for different markets. There just isn't the amount of quality BRZ around...

Is Indian rosewood going to be the next brazilian in value? (topic)
I am beginning to wonder if I should hang on to an Indian rosewood Martin guitar that I have after reading that ALL rosewoods are under CITES legislation. I sure would hate to sell it for 2K now only to find out next year it is worth 6K!...

I would think the easiest way would be to cast the resin around the cut shell design. Then sand and polish level. In the old days they would glue the cut shell design to the tortoise shell and cut carefully around so it would drop in. I...

Maybe give Dave Nichols a call. He's a super nice guy and he's the man that did the inlay work for Mike Longworth when Martin started making the D-45 again.http://www.custompearlinlay.com/

Re: Rosewood neck? (reply)
Per The Fender Telecaster by A.R. Duchossior the Telecaster made for George in '67 has a 2 piece rosewood neck (I think that means a neck and separate fretboard) and a solid body. It can be heard on Let It Be sessions and on the rooftop...

Hi!I would love to eventually build an OM-45 Deluxe replica, and would like to know where I could see a tutorial for doing the inlay work on the pickguard. Please let me know, should you have a suggestion for me on this matter.Thanks,Fred.

Re: Rosewood neck? (reply)
What a beautiful looking custom, and equally sounding from your post. My D-28's weigh in around 4 lbs., 10 to 12 ounces. If you have access to a scale I'd like to know its weight. I suspect the added mass of a rosewood neck might be one...

One would think that it would sound terrible (if one could hear it at all) but being made by Martin who knows ?
