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!)
