    Westminster Ca.

    or JUST


    EDIT: and Bird's eye Maple Fretboard. Is the bass gonna be a Neck through or bolt on? If its a Bolt on, I would suggest a Wenge/Prupleheart/Wenge/Purpleheart/Wenge
  4. What about Flame Walnut for the top? Not only the most beautiful wood in the world but also with a tone to die for...

    Why not go KOA!
  6. The flamed maple with be the center block.. with the front and back facings not quite covering the entire top allowing the flamed maple to show through the front and sides.. ala. sei, alembic it will not be totally encapsulated in the front and back facings...

    With going for

    Rock Maple/Wegne or as mentions Purple/Wenge or maybe even 1 piece Eastern Hard Rock Maple Neck...

    Fingerboard Figured Maple with Wegne Binding.!!!

    Walnut has crossed my mind...and if a nice piece turns up then you never know..same with Koa..you can get some Crazzy Koa which looks great.!!! :)...

    Ill keep you all posted..!!
