    I am dying over here. (all maple cores)
    I have 2 mock ups of the next oracles I want to order.
    The first is, pyinma top, lake salvage quilted maple pu covers and inlay, ebony neck. marbled fiddleback claro walnut back.

    the second is, lake salvage lace redwood top.
    with spalted flame maple covers and inlay, ebony neck
    and a lake salvge quilted maple back.

    I also have a 3rd but I can only post 2 at a time here.
    its curly holly top, Pale moon ebony fingerboard and pu covers with gaboon ebony inlay and bindings.
    and a particularly wierd wood back to be named later!

    help I need imput and NO Input if you are just slamming the design.
  2. The second, love the lacewood top. I like the design.

    I also want to use some figured carob and lace sheoak I found and some orange/purple camatillo I have. I am making 2 more designs, (to complicate the decision even more)
    but heres the holly one.
  6. hey its that weird piece of wood!
  7. Weird piece indeed.

    I like things a little less in your face, so i'm liking the third a little more. Maybe with ebony as the bulk of the pup covers? I like the continuity idea but it looks a little out of place, maybe bound with the moon ebony? Or even as is, just bound with the gaboon ebony.
