you need to hang some fuzzy dice from the scroll for true pimpin style, perhaps a fur wrap for the bow stick and some gold for your "grill". lol

I think the design you've chosen is pretty cool lookin.

I always wondered (since I saw it for the first time) if the inlay design on the fingerboard would influence the sound at all. Also... hope you never have to re-scoup the fingerboard with a scraper...lol

cool looking design... bet it took an incredible amount of painstaking work to do... how in the world can they sell that beautiful stuff for such a cheap price anyway?

That's gonna look great!

I really like that there's matching inlay on the chin rest, ties it altogether nicely.

Will look forward to seeing itsmile

ETA: I went back and looked at your viola, and see it also has inlay on the chin rest.

(had a mini memory lapse)....lol!

Anyway, I've seen some done in the past that didn't continue the design on all pieces, so it's extra nice when it does.
