It Might Get Weird: Mandanici’s Best Friend — Virgil Dueling Dragons Guitar

For inlay work, builders often use all kinds of exotic materials, including shells, hardwoods, semiprecious stones and precious metals. When building his Dueling Dragons guitar, luthier Virgil Mandanici of Virgil Guitars utilized all of the above, but he also incorporated two more unusual materials: teeth from prehistoric sharks, for the dragons’ teeth and claws, and puppy teeth, for the dragons’ horns.
