Hi everyone 

Looking for advice on how to do an inlay into a headstock that will be painted black and I’m having a tough time finding any. 

It’s a simple inlay, mother of pearl.

Any thoughts on the process would be greatly appreciated.

@robin If Scotland get independence, they will have to call it SST (Scottish Standard Time). 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Or..... SFT (Scottish Freedom Time) 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

That's not so much if,  it's when.

When I'm at my caravan over on the west coast it's a different time zone again, everything is in Argyll time, nothing happens quickly. That's not a bad thing though, very relaxing. 🙂🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

@robin That’s what I’m counting on Robin, it sounds like my idyllic place. I like to live life at a slow pace. For years we toyed with the idea of living on a canal boat (wide beam) because of the pace of life but my wife’s health needs have changed. So now we are looking for a land based alternative. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Dave, if you haven’t already seen it, BigD guitars, on YouTube does this very thing when restoring an old Les Paul.

Here’s the link.
