    Looking to have some pearl inlay work done.

    I'd like to have a name inlayed into the truss rod cover of my Collings MT. Can you recommend someone who does this type of work?

    Back in the day I had an original Intellitouch and it worked better than anything I’ve had since. Even the smaller (square) versions they made were great. Not sure what happened to the company.
