    Was wondering if the early BO thumbs had Bubinga bodies and wenge necks, Bubinga/ovangkol, or they've always been all ovangkol?

    I've seen a bubingo bo in a 4 but i think it was a limited edition and a very small run at even that. Never saw in 5 (which I looked high and low for). I'll just have to stick with my SR5...
  5. I'm pretty sure there were a few of the first run of Thub BO 4s that had Bubinga bodies, and they werten't the GC Anniversary edition either. I saw one for sale about 4-5 years ago that I almost bought. I'm not sure if there were any 5s, but I'd imagine that there were.
