Thanks, Norbert.

Here's the final backstrip inlayed with the purfling. Obviously I've incorporated elements from the rosette for a unified aesthetic.

I love both, but might like this even a bit more due to it's simplicity. It's just gorgeous. Creative, and aesthetically pleasing/harmonious.

Congrats!! Great work. I am trying to do something like the small wood squares but don't know how. I saw this type of decoration strips in a Romanillos guitar. Can you share your technique?

I'm guessing maybe a V-groove router bit? I know nothing about building guitars...

Beauty in simplicity! :bravo: Apart from the geometrical shapes, the other thing that makes it stand out is the contrast between the dark woods & Spruce
