Birds
One of six fingerboards and four bodies done for a Japanese company between March and June. They're going to cut the fret slots when they get them back.
Dragons
One of two dragon necks and bodies for another Japanese company around the same timeframe.
Floral
A random vine pattern.  I wish the slots didn't need to be cut.  This looks good just the way it is.
Grapes
Grapes and songbirds.  The grapes are cut from black mother of pearl.  Must be merlot vines.
Klein
This vine is on my Klein guitar.  The vine itself is 18k gold and the flowers are black abalone.  All leaves were cut from red abalone.
Martin Guitars
The history of flight was done for CF Martin.  I wanted it to coincide with the hundredth anniversary of the Wright brothers' flight (2003), but 2002 was a busy year, finishing Martin #1,000,000 as well as a second Peacock Martin.
Nouveau 1
A lovely Nouveau theme in thin ivory, kingwood hair, gold dust and silver framing.
Nouveau 2
This is the body that went with the previous fingerboard.
Rose
Rose vine where all the roses are cut from different material.
Fujigen
All six Fujigen boards ready to ship.
SS1
An Olson guitar commemorating the successful flight of SS1, the first private spacecraft that won the $10 million X-1 Prize.  The guitar is owned by test pilot and VP of Scaled Composites, Doug Shane.
Signature
Some of my jobs are decidedly on the smaller size throughout the year.  This is luthier Roy McAlister's signature.
Warrior
One of my all time favorites, this warrior went on a peghead for a Chinese guitar company.
