    Wow...that guitar looks like it should be hung in a high-end jewelry store. It looks like a gem. That is a classy looking guitar to die for.

    Its hel in place with magnets, 2 of them, rare earth magnets that are 3mm in diameter.
    The pointed section of the cover is chamfered at the back.
    So to gain access, all you do is to push down ont the pointy end, and the whole cover pops up.
    Its really easy to access, and no messy screws to hide under the couch...

    Peter, your work always looks amazing. A master builder fo sure. I like the magnet idea, just haven't figured out how to incorporate it into my guitars.

    Beautiful. And while the photography may not show up the true gold, what it does show up is an interesting color. A kinda gold-flake light-lime. It would be a cool color to do on purpose.
