Default Maple Greta

Some of you may remember this Josie spec model I made to build up stock for guitar shows;

I bought this wonderfully quilted Western Big Leaf Maple billet which yielded enough to make 3 guitars. I have a client order for my Greta model with will have one of those awesome bear claw Sitka sets which I've also recently acquired. We've sorted out many of the details and work has begun. Here are a couple pictures of the wood sets;

We were looking for a nice darker brown trim wood and since this is going overseas we are avoiding rosewood. We decided to go with Macassar Ebony;

Lot's more details to come!
