Rosette Inlaying Service



To have us rout and inlay a rosette, first order a top from our wide selection of top woods, then choose the service as explained below.

SVRIC Service:
    Order a single ring rosette, either classical or steel string which we will install when you order this service. Steel string rosettes that qualify for single ring installation are the R5 or any of our .375” wide solid wood rosettes. All other steel string rosettes are designed for a 3-ring configuration.

SVRIS Service:
    Order part # R13/R13PB (Bold Herringbone/Bold Herringbone Parlor), R13F/R13PF (Fine Herringbone/ Fine Herringbone Parlor), or any of our .187” wide solid wood rosettes for the central ring. Each of these rosettes includes approx. 30" of PFLMSH5 purfling which we use for the inner and outer rings of the three-ring scheme. 

SKU Product Name In Stock Each

SVRIS Rosette Service - Inlay steel string 3-ring rosette Allow 1 Week for Service $75.00


  • Rosette service prices include the joining and sanding of the top you bought. • If we are inlaying the rosette, we will thickness sand to top to between .110 - .115".
  • If we are routing the channel only and not inlaying the rosette, the top will be thickness sanded to .125" or 1/8" only and you will have to further remove material.
  • We will remove your soundhole when you order any of these services. The soundhole dimensions on the 000/OM and the dreadnought instruments will be 4" in diameter. This may not exactly match your plan, but it is very close. Our OM or dreadnought style pickguards will work well with this rosette service.
  • When inlaying a classical rosette, the soundhole will be cutout leaving 1/8" between the rosette and the soundhole. If you prefer a different diameter, please ask.
