Wel­come to Gui­tar Inlays Head­quar­ters! As you’ll soon dis­cover, gui­tar inlays are much more than mere dec­o­ra­tion. Whether you’re here for info on inlay stick­ers, inlay kits, info on luthiers, or even if you just came to gawk at some pic­tures of gor­geous inlays,  you’ve come to the right place!

 

Wel­come to Gui­tar Inlays Headquarters!

Welcome to Guitar Inlays HQ

Here at Gui­tar Inlays Head­quar­ters, we hope to become the Internet’s No.1 resource for gui­tar inlay infor­ma­tion. We’re still putting together con­tent for the site, so please be patient as we don’t want to rush the process and end up with another poorly orga­nized web­site filled with (mis)-information.

Here’s what we have planned for the web­site: Our focus will be on gui­tar inlays and mar­quetry. We’ll write reviews and prod­uct com­par­isons about inlay related tools and kits. We’ll explore the dif­fer­ences between clas­sic abalone, nacre (mother of pearl or MOP), var­i­ous met­als, pre­cious gems and stones, tusks, exotic woods, and even newer lam­i­nates such as Abalam that are now used for inlays. We’ll check out inlay sticker kits and write reviews on which are safe and playable, and more impor­tantly which ones can dam­age the fin­ish of your gui­tar. We also want to fea­ture arti­cles show­cas­ing fan­tas­tic inlay work too, so you can get inspired and fol­low in the foot­steps of other great luthiers. We want to pub­lish inter­views and how-to’s by the world’s top inlay luthiers. Finally, we want to even­tu­ally setup a forum where you, our read­ers, can visit, brain­storm, dis­cuss, and read your own posts on every­thing from new-age CNC rout­ing to old school DIY design.

As you can see, we have big hopes for Gui­tar Inlays HQ, so please bear with us as we slowly flesh out the web­site with con­tent and ideas and even­tu­ally make it the Internet’s No.1 resource for gui­tar inlays. And while we’ve got you here, we would really love it if you tell us what sorts of infor­ma­tion you would like to read about here — it would really help us with ideas for con­tent! And if you’re inter­ested in get­ting updates as we put more and more con­tent here, be sure to sign up for our mail­ing list. (zero spam, we promise!)
