    That's gonna be hot! It's amazing how the top and back appear to be the same wood, but they're not! I dig the wood choices.

    Spalted Beech is defiently one of my favorite tops. This one is gonna be a beaut for sure when shes done. Love the choice for the Hipshot Tremelo too, I heard those things were awesome. What electronics are you gonna be using too btw?
