Secret inlay revealed
The fretboard is African walnut, and I'm pretty sure it comes from the same piece as the fretboard on Magnus' first Argapa. I think this is a genious move by me.
And then the inlay. Since he's Bad Cop in our fantastic bombastic duo, he gets a night stick. This also has the advantage that the recess was dead easy to make - 20 seconds on the mini router. The inlay material is bone, because it's harder and less happy looking than mother of pearl.
It did turn out pretty graphic! And less happy looking than a real kanji. Because we're hard men. With doughnuts.
