Puff as he is affectionately known to his new family is comprised of 187 pieces. The body is made
from Mother of Pearl, each scale is Abalone. The ridge down the back of the dragon is made from sterling
silver. The belly of the dragon is brass and the legs are copper. The teeth
and claws are made from reclaimed antique ivory from piano keys. The tongue is made from Pink Ivory, a rare
wood from Africa. The breath of the dragon is made from brass filings set in optically clear epoxy. Finally, the
eyes are pink sapphires. It took James countless hours to cut out and inlay each piece.
The logo on David's guitar is made from a jeweller's casting in bronze, buffed to a nice shiny finish. Behind the cloud of the logo is white Mother of Pearl, and in the circle formed by the dragon is red Abalone. The logo is inlaid before all the clear finish is applied. When we're all done, you can't even feel the logo when you slide your fingers across it.
One of the features David really liked was the polished brass hardware. Even though it will require regular
cleaning and polishing, it's a bit less showy than goldplating the hardware, and doesn't compete with the
inlay on the fingerboard.
