Super nice. Love the inlays. Is buffalo horn the new thing now? Just last night I saw a friend post about using that material on a Chris Squire 8 string re-creation he's building.

Thank you Tom.
Don't know about the buffalo horn. I was just looking for non-plastic black nut material. And my supplier happened to have bufallo horn.

Another beaut, bud!
