Here are a few shots of a Kabuto 8053 I finished and shipped to Virginia last week. A flame-kissed stacked bamboo insert, darkened slide-band seat, Arguello agate, and silk wraps round out this build. Thanks for looking!

nice clean build! Do you use epoxy or varnish on the wraps?

Eastslope- Thanks! I used thinned light build Flex Coat for the first coat and then non-thinned after.
