- Reaction score
I've seen some transluscent Chesterfield inlays on some guitars made between 1976-78. The pearloid material is clear enough so you can see the 3-piece neck construction right through it. In the photo below you can see the maple stringer running down the center of the inlay. I'm guessing Guild got a low quality batch of material or perhaps there is another reason (thickness of material used, reaction with glue or finish). Anybody know?
