Detail of the peghead volute and overlay on the back of the neck for Koa/Adirondack GC16.  The neck is striped hondouran mahogany with a curly maple ribbon.  The volute overlay is ebony/maple /ebony.  The volute is a geometric transition between two different dimensions and angles at the junction of neck and peghead.
