A couple of questions.
First, what are the dimensions of a standard, Martin headstock? The headstock on my Hannalei-Moon neck is oversized so you can create your own headstock design. I think I will stick with the Martin standard for now so I need the dimensions to trim it correctly.
Second, I had John Hall send me EIR that matches my back/sides to use as headstock veneer. Recently, I read that it's easier to inlay in ebony. I plan to inlay my last name in the headstock......so should I stick with ebony since this is my first inlay attempt or will I be fine with the EIR? I'm curious, what Martin would have used for headstock veneer on a pre-war, OM or 000 with Herringbone, 28 style trim? Ebony?
