    What is generally used as the material for the thin, dark accent line used to seperate the woods in a lot of the multi-laminate bodies? (IE: ash body with a maple top) Is it a piece of dark wood veneer, plastic, or some other composite, and where does one obtain such material? Thanks!

    I use wood veneer. I recommend Certainly Wood. I think it's certainlywood.com

    Thanks! I have seen several multi-laminates with a dark accent line that I really like. I just didn't know if it was a specific wood, or just maple veneer or something similar dyed a darker color.

    I have a Warwick FNA and the website says it has an ash body with a maple cap seperated by a walnut veneer.
