    I listened to a video interview where you (Richard) are holding a Custom 000 (I believe) with 45 style abalone inlays. Richard,you make some statement to the effect that you place the inlay where it won’t impact the sound. How does abalone inlay used around the bouts or in other locations on a guitar impact tone?

    I asked Richard this question about my 1934 D with style 45 appointments.
    He answered me on this page…..He said it definitely did make a difference.
    Maybe you can search this page for his answer.
    Richard’s and Bill Warmouth’s and my conversation about this exact topic (before I ordered the 34) was the deciding factor in my getting the style 45 upgrade.
    Just looked the topic is on page 2 ….under D45 appointments.
