I was asked to create a custom embossed panel to sit on top of the scratchplate of a Gibson guitar, and a matching piece for the little truss rod cover plate on the guitar headstock. The brief was ‘Skeletal Medusa’, so after I created the panels to fit the specific shapes, I glued them firmly to the pickguard/truss rod cover and covered them in a layer of resin to protect the metal. The last image in the series shows both pieces screwed into place on the guitar.
