Does the Blues for Allah inlay work cover a compartment like the Tiger?...if so...I don't see any screws. Absolutely beautiful work...I also think it looks good oriented with the standing guitar...rather than on it's side. WOW.

Man... that is so cool! Everything on that guitar is awesome! I love the no-holds-barred approach to the Wolf style.

I don't know. I only did the inlay work, I didn't build the guitar. I remember than they were talking about having it held in my magnets at one point. In the close up, it looks like it's glue in, but is sort of hard to tell. The inlay in the standing position sort of caught me off guard. I design it to go the other way, but of course the final decision would be up to the luthier.

Hey, that's my guitar! I just posted it in another thread and here you guys have been talking about it for a month or so.

It is really a sweet guitar. Any questions, just ask. And Cliff from Sharkinlay was just the best to work with. Love him!

It's Cliff Suttle, the guy who designed and made the Blues of Allah piece shown above. Just thought I would chime in and see if there are any questions about how it was made, or materials used, or how it will be installed on the guitar, or the meaning of life ...

Ask away.



Great job Cliff, I really like your work. And while your willing, Why are we here on this Earth?

Now there is a interesting question. I think that are two possible answers.

1) We are just the product of dumb luck as a consequence of the life engine that exists in the universe and is probably going on everywhere.

OR

2) We are a small part in the process of the universe coming into conscienese. (I know that's spelled wrong)

I thought the answer to life the universe and everything is 72. Go figure. If you get a chance go check out the new pictures from the hubble, spitzer and the Chandra telescopes and checkout all the galaxies, billions of them, and we can barely get to mars. All that puts life's struggles into perspective for me. Everything I kill myself over seems to turn into trivial matters. I finally made one of those pictures my screen saver to keep me in perspective often :lol: .

HA! you actually answered it for me....

Actually that would be 42? You need to reread the book. :-)

Well, you know what they say, don't sweat the small stuff, and everything is small stuff.
