    Resin Ivory: Schregar Lines.

    This is a bottom side of the Resin Ivory GuitarParts and More sells.
    Neat stuff!
    To me it’s a tad soft but looks really great.

    I’m beginning to understand how diamond investors felt when cubic zirconium showed up!

    So what's the test to show they're not real ivory?

    Much to my chagrin I have a supernatural sense of smell.
    Put the grips in question in a plastic sandwich bag and let it sit in the sun for a minute. It’ll smell like tooth.
    This Resin has a hint of automotive body filler smell.

    Ivory is harder and shows a fracture line somewhere, regardless how perfect.

    I love the way this material works out once I've cut, sanded, and polished it to fit my Single actions.

    I used a couple of Harbor Freight sanders, one is a disc sander and the other is a 1" belt sander. After sanding the pieces to the general shape I took wet-dry sanding sheets to the kitchen sink to make the final smooth sanding under running water. Once I got the that done I went back to my shop and used my bench grinder with cotton buffing wheel and a stick of white polishing rouge.

    Not the best picture around but it kind of meets the requirements.

    Heat the end of a pin glowing hot and stick it in a non-visible area of the grip ( underside )...

    If it smells like "burnt hair"...which is what ivory really is...it's REAL Ivory.
