** Notice** The "Flaming Sun" inlay from James's #2 (Bubinga top) will, hence forth, have to be an up-charge of +$1200.00 because of the abnormally large amount of Gold MOP that it takes to do the "Flames" of that pattern with it all being a similar color and flash. Gold Mother of Pearl has quite a lot of variance in color and depth of color so a larger pattern like the "Flaming Sun", can require many times the amount of White Mother of Pearl for a similar design just to be able to match the shell. Also, just like many of the premium figured woods, choice shell is becoming more scarce and hence more costly and difficult to obtain.
