I previously posted a photo of this guitar with a temporary saddle and asked for saddle/bridge color advice.

That advice ranged from red, to white bridge/black saddle to what it ended up, black bridge with white bone saddle.

Also two or more liked the idea of a red eye on the wolf. I tried that in a mock-up and liked it better without.

This guitar was gifted to me with top, back and braces needing a big re-glue job. It was a six string with green and orange and old hippie paintings.

It is still rough, but I like the look quite a bit and it plays and sounds about at about a grade C level, which is not too bad.

Thanks for the suggestions.

John

Thanks, Ambrose.  It does look good if you stand back a bit.  Give the wolf some room.

Top job... a howling success!

LOL, BQ.   I wish I could.  Thanks, Denbo.   I like it, but the wolf's den is getting pretty full.   I think it's best I don't take a count.  Plus two gits started out in the shop.
