Over the summer I'm just itchin to build my self a acoustic. I've been looking at some on the market and I've seen the new Ibanez Exoctic wood Fretless. The whole body's been made of spalted maple. I'v heard it and it sounds nice. Well my real question is if they realy mad it from spalted maple or if they just painted some other wood like spalted maple. looks like this: Ohh yea... and if would bloodwood work for the finger board.
