    i have all of the details set for my next divinity oracle but I cant decide what headstock back veneer is best.
    wenge like the neck
    or the lake quited maple like the back.

    I know this is super trivial but I want opinions!
    help me!

    I kind of like the wenge to complete the look of the neck, but that quilt maple is awesome too! I think I'd go with the wenge though. Damn those Oracles are sick, how many do you have now??

    This will be my second oracle
    I had two (a really beautiful lace redwood top with curly redwood back) and my black ebony one.
    but my stambaugh is now finished too and I just didnt have enough cheddar to throw out on 3 cutoms at one time so I sold the redwood one at NAMM.!:bawl:
    (I have the cerrunos reverse horn/tribal divinity too)

    I do however have the ebony one which is on its way! should be here this week!
    and my stambaugh in the next 2 weeks!

    this one I am just finishing up all of the details and it'll be official
    I am leaning toward the wenge but its a really hard call.

    I voted for the Wenge as I like how it compliments the neck.

    The quilt maple looks good too, but I think the Wenge is the way to go on this one.

    How about installing a flamethrower on the back of the headstock?

    Forget that, make it simply a picture of carrots.

  10. Personally, if I had to chose, I'd go with the quilt. Although the wenge compliments the neck, it kinda looks like the wood is dead. Maybe that's just me, I think it looks alittle ugly. But hey, either are good.

    I'd go with the wenge, although the quilt is nice too. I think a quilt would be better suited for a headstock front.
