The highly figured black walnut topwood was damaged during the fabrication process, so I have to choose another topwood. The body is laminated as follows; the core is swamp ash, sandwiched by purple heart, sandwiched by maple, with black walnut wings on the back. I chose an awesome bookmatched spalted burl maple for the topwood. I'm not sure how the light top will go with the dark back though. Anyone got a similar pic of something like it?
