    Spalted Maple for the top for sure and I'm going to guess either Mahogany or Padouk for the body wood, Ebony FB, and Mac Ebony covers and knobs.
    Sweet bass!
     
  4. The body is Etimoe. I think that is Jerzy's standard body wood.

    I didn't know that Tom Bowlus had bought this bass.

    I'm sorry, but what's "proberly rock"? Am I missing something?

    Sorry for that last post. I don't know what I was thinking, but after reading it again, I think it was supposed to be "probably rock" as in probably rock maple. I feel like a microbe! :bag:

    I don't think the top is Maple.

    Yup, spalted (and I would say also flamed) maple top, etimoe body, and ebony board. To be honest, the pictures don't do it justice. It's quite striking. Jerzy is an artist!
