    Mmmm...those are beautiful. I love the simplicity of the top one. Awesome stuff.

    I think the binding cheapens it though, IMO.

    Usually just EADG. Sometimes BEAD (when I can afford to
    mess around with a 5-string set of Acousticores :p )
    upper neck (T/I Acousticores)

    Macassar Ebony fretboard over a beautimous piece of old-growth
    (tight-grained) Mahogany for the neck. Mr. A got it from an antique
    table :) . Birdseye maple skunk stripe and graphite inserts in the
    Mahogany for stability, no dead spots. Alaskan bone nut.

    Bluegum veneered headstock(s) to match the top

    Fishman Acoustic Matrix Natural I piezo under a Corian® bridge

    lower neck (Rotosound RS88-LD tapewounds)

    Buttery Cocobolo board over a Birdseye Maple neck

    Fishman Acoustic Matrix Natural II piezo


    body -- one very large and light piece of Swamp Ash.
    Sternum resonatin' sympathetic vibes between necks unplugged :eek:

    top -- bookmatched Bluegum. Pretty (IMO) and dern near indestructible

    bridge -- one-piece Macassar Ebony with matching knob-age


    upper neck -- very mwah-y to borderline zing-y with insane sustain

    lower neck -- major funk thump-age with gobs of doghouse airy-ness

    COST ? (with custom UnderCover gig bag)

    hmm...a little less than a 1 carat, Round Brilliant, Ideal-cut G-SI1 engagement ring :p
