    Sadly, mine isn't quite built yet... :bawl:

    But here's the top of my Bee (don't pay attention to the outline, it's not that style)! Burl walnut, yummy....and the body is Butternut, a species of walnut.

    The 1st picture I posted makes the bass look more of a redwood color. This picture captures it's true color

    Wow, that's unique!

    I'm not a Ric fan, but that has a definitely nice vintage feel to it.
