    I like it. What is that body wood? Is it soft?
     
  4. I'd also like to know, it really reminds me of spalted maple and I like it!
     
  5. Nice body! Pity it's not bookmatched...
     
  6. It's a Holly tree or was.. the density is about like Alder.

    Yeah it's some pretty stuff.

    When you have a limited amount....:crying:

    That's a heck of a drop off on the headstock.
     
  8. Was the Spalt natural, or did you induce it? Must have been a large holly tree !!!
     
  9. Nice,I was going to ask what the body wood was,it's sure got a lot of character.That must've been a big holly!
     
  10. The fret board isn't finished..

    Natural and yes it had been trimmed down many times prior to loosing the battle.

    Hideous.... :bassist:
     
  11. I wasn't digging the neck with that body so I switched her over to another build..
