Couldn't find any decent maple for the oval so you used a topo map of the Rockies in its place? YOWZA! I'm getting seasick just looking at the photos, absolutely stunning.

I thought it was worth using even though it has the sap imperfection.

What is the story behind the "050" in the back inlay of tiger? Maybe Thomas Lieber knows.

More updates with new features added because of the new refinish photos from 1990. The triple ring is now inset flush w/ the body and the enhanced carving on the left side.

Looking awesome, Leo. Tiger inlay is superb and the recessed pickup ring is wonderful touch. Can't wait to get her in my hands. :-)
