Rosettes and Marquetry

The Rosette, Contra-Rosette, and Marquetry are distinguishing features of PG Guitars. My feeling is that the art should not stop at the top, so I create a complimentary medallion (Contra-Rosette) that is installed inside the guitar, under the sound hole. When buying one of my guitars you do not need to have a label advertising the fact that this is a Portland Guitar. An appropriate label is included inside the body in an unobtrusive location. The following pictures are some examples of Portland Guitar's rosettes, contra-rosettes, and marquetry.
