I've see this stuff and there is no way one could tell it is fake ((unless you poked it with an awl) -- does the guitar makers police raid your shop if you use it?

Interesting, some people like the D45 idea. To me, a little bit of abalone is eye catching, too much is camp.
Well, just my opinion.

Maybe the police jumps in if we use golden bindings. We have gold tops for decades, but golden binding?
Probably there is someone who would fancy that.

The police did raid my shop when they found out that I don't always use HHG.
I hope the charges don't....stick.
