    Yea, this has to do w/ the bass I'm building... Quick recap...

    Body = Warmoth Dinky J, Wood = Black Korina, Color = Translucent Blue...

    Neck = USACG '62 J specs neck, Wood = Quartersawn Wenge, FB Wood = Ebony.

    Here's my question... I originally wanted to have a matching headstock. However, because Black Korina is kinda soft, you its really hard to make a veneer thin enough for a headstock...

    www.roxyguitarfinish.com will finish the peghead veneer for me, no problems.

    The opinions I'm looking for are: what color & wood, do YOU think would match well w/ the body & neck I've just described to you... If I don't get a great idea.... no biggie,, I'll just leave the headstock unfinished wenge.

    I'm thinking maybe,, a myrtle burl,, dyed blue to match the color tone... I'm just not sure...

    Hmm, perhaps I should've put this in the luthiers corner?
