i just met Dave Nichols ten minutes ago. the man who did the inlays for this: http://www.mguitar.com/history/million.php i met him at a bluegrass festival and his band played, i remembered his name from somewhere then the announcer said " Dave does inlays for martin guitar. So, i broke passed security and entered the backstage to meet him. he gave me his number, and i will be attending his guitar building school this summer. i will post later on my guitar. It should have kickass inlays on it since im learning from the best of the best.
I had my hands in the river,
My feet back up on the bank,
Looked up to the Lord above and said,
"Hey man, Thanks"

Oh, i always thought it was larry robinson who did the inlays one the 1 000 000th guitar.
It would have been cool to meet that guy though. Good luck at his school!

EDIT: Larry Robinson did do the 1 000 000th guitar, dave giulietti did the engraving.

Im sorry, i meant to say: Dave said, "That there was three of us that worked on it. I did the fine engraving on the headstock and neck."

He also had a mandolin with him that he showed me. It was absolutly amazing. The inlays were all seashell. I was blown away at his guitar skills also.

I've seen some of his work, it's amazing stuff.
It's cool meeting luthier who are great at what they do.

I can imagine them needing 3 people to do those inlays.
