Head inlay question

Another question for you guys...sorry one day I hope to be able to offer some advice instead of taking it all the time!

I am spending a LOT of time planning what I would like to do in my first build so that I 'know' what I am going to be doing before I attempt to do it.

Today I am looking at inlaying the headstock. I am thinking of rosewood fretboard and matching bridge and headstock veneer. Does the inlay material have to be hardwood? I am wondering if I could use the piece I cut out from the sound hole to inlay in the headstock and fret positions to give a contrast to the rosewood veneer and match the soundboard!

Any thought would be appreciated.

Inlay is an artistic impression and you have the control to what you want to do. If it pleases you , do it

Thanks for the reponce. I understand that inlays are personal and just about anything goes but I guess I should have made the question clearer because what i was really wanting to know was would the soft spruce used for soundboards be too soft for inlays thus giving me an issue later? Or would my chosen finish provide a certain amount of protection?

Sorry if I didn't make things too clear!

Hi Paul, I used a piece of maple left over from the bridge plate. SM send quite a generous piece, enough for 2 bridgeplates I reckon.

My only concern would be in regards to the tuner bushings or washer/nut assemblies. Over the years, I think Spruce will shrink in thickness more than any other guitar wood, and it might be too easy to indent the tuners into the wood, potentially harming the surrounding finish. If others don't feel this is an issue, I would go for it! Either that, or use a hardwood around the holes, and inlay the spruce artistically in areas that don't have hardware!

Paul, my take is that you plan to use spruce for an inlay into a RW peghead overlay and also for fretboard inlays. As Ken points out, the spruce may be too soft to go under the tuner post etc, but on the peghead it should be fine if you keep it away from the tuners. I would not recommend spruce for the fretboard inlays. You should use a hardwood like maple if you are using wood in the fretboard. If you use spruce the wear of the strings when you finger will eventually show and if you bend strings I would imagine even more wear. These are just my thoughts, but I would be wary of a soft wood on the fretboard.

Soft wood mixed with hard wood is hard to sand let alone wear so fretboard should be all hard wear wood. To build a guitar for a hundred years is for someone else so do as you please if it's for your pleasure....rules are made to be broken...

Thanks guys ... thinkI will take your advice and maybe use maple. Still give the desired effect but wont have to worry about wear, especially on the fretboard.

Thanks for all your comments. That is the problem starting out on something for the first time you know jack about anything. It's all a learning curve.

One other thing to keep in mind is that most, if not all, maple fretboards are finished because Maple gets very dirty very quickly, though it does wear well. If you are going to use maple on your fingerboard, the surface will haev to be treated in some fashion or it will be difficult to keep clean.
