So the other day I actually had a guitar design come to me in a dream. There were two specific elements to the dream: the rosette, and a new way to access the higher frets that I'm not sure I've seen before. The dream guitar really spoke to me so I've decided to create it in real life. Here is the rosette. The pencil line is where the sound hole will be cut out. In the dream it was actually a little wilder, taking up more of the upper bout but I decided to make it a little more reasonable.
A while ago there was a thread about line and berry (minus the berry) inlay for rosette making. I made a test idea with the technique but wasn't thrilled with it so never used it on a guitar. This is another version of that but liberated from the hard concentric circles that constrain far too many rosettes
The guitar probably won't be finished for a while as I have other orders to crank out but I wanted to get this design out of my head.
