Default Hello Robin, T

Hello Robin,
This looks really nice and I prefer my own instruments with a plain fretboard. No inlays or side dots. These inlays are really classy . Maybe someday I will have a custom inlays with tear drops running down the length of the fret board .

Default I think the Dolphin inlays are

I think the Dolphin inlays are a referrence to the Gulf of Mexico being right next to Houston. I was out in the Gulf this past Saturday and saw 4 pods out there. I could be wrong about this, but it was the only thing I could think of!

Default I like the new design... simp

I like the new design... simple always seams to to be timeless... but hey, then there's the Texas/custom possibilites that draws the eye and makes everyone go goo goo ga ga... man, vanity is a killer.... While we're at it, I think it would look cool, (and be a great branding idea), to engrave the Rio Grande insignia, RG, etc. on the nickle plated covers... sign me up for a set....
