I just got some beautiful Abalone marker dots. Red and brown oil paint mixed for my red stripes.

Super. Always enjoy seeing the 2 color stained fretboard. 

Comment by Tim Pannabecker on Thursday

I love the cross grain on the fretboard 

Comment by Dave Lynas on Tuesday

Mike Orr fretboards are great. I think quite affordable. This one is a preslotted Rosewood board from MGB (I thought it was ebony but it’s Rosewood). Gitty frets that I hammered in. 

I’m not sure about the mahogany shims Daniel I think they are from the Supro body.

Comment by Daniel Walter on Tuesday

that little piece of mahogany looks familiar...........are the abalone dots contagious?.........,., ( just ordered a moorboard. bring poverty to a new level).
