    Hey TB fam,

    I am in the process of building a warmoth and I have a question. I am building a Swamp ash body with quilted maple top with a honey burst finish. The neck is going to be wenge with a black ebony fretboard. My question is should I get the back of the warmoth the same honeyburst color or should i get it a transparent brown color and add a natural wood binding on the top? Any suggestions are appreciated.

    I have a Warmoth HB ash guitar I recently completed and I can say that HB + ash looks fantastic.

    I was thinking about doing HB ash with quilt maple or all ash

    The natural mask body binding does look really sweet. This is a Warmoth bodied bass that I built a couple of years ago.

  6. I would leave the back clear and put the $$ into the binding.
