Greeting rukinfders!
I recently acquired a vintage guitar body in need of restoration
In short--needs sanding and refinishing
While refinished I would like some inlay work near tailpiece--similar to wolf but with different motif
If inlay work not possible am open to medallion that would be attacked to body--similar to tiger but again different motif
I reached out to usual suspects from this site. Up all are jammed up with work orders
Would appreciate any leads about luthiers capable of doing this type of work in timely fashion
On a side note I've lurked on this site for years without posting.....

I have a friend that laser cuts inlay for me. He cuts the pocket and the inlay material so it fits perfectly. I would think that you could take your artwork and body to a trophy shop and they could do it for you. He normally cuts the pocket deeper than the the thickness of the inlay then floods it with CA so you don't get in to the inlay material when sanding.
