Clifford provided inlaid rosewood fretboard, and ebony peghead overlays for the neck of a very special 1925 Gibson Style 5 neck that I assembled and finished. The wreath style inlays were skillfully hand cut and inlaid into the fretboard and overlay, and sent to me for assembly. He made the inlays exactly as I specified which included an unusual configuration that was on the original tenor neck. His inlays are the highlight of the new neck! He also provided me with some handmade style 5 marquetry binding for the neck. I could not find anywhere else and his marquetry is beautiful. Thank you Clifford, it was a pleasure working with you on this project, and I would highly recommend talking with him before you start your next neck project. He's the man!!!
