Voldo Lives.

Voldo Lives.
The second epic inlay of the year, I was given an artist's rendering of the gaming character Voldo to interpret as well as possible. Such a massive inlay fit well onto the massive frame of a 10-string extended range bass. A variety of materials were used to help with the realism of the design- Chechen, bloody jasper, mother of pearl, and faux ivory were the key elements. Only minimal engraving was done, relying on the almost 200 individually hand cut inlay pieces to create most details. The Chechen wood was once again used for the pickup covers, which matched nicely with the intense colors of the buckeye burl top.
