Default West Coast build for Hanter

One of the two new guitars in the starting gate. (The other one is Paulís BRW beast). Both are going to use tunnel 14 o 15 redwood for the top.

Hanterís Specs are as follows:
West Coast OM
Cocobolo back and sides
Multi scale
Tunnel 14 redwood top with mineral streaking
THE TREE binding or maybe purfling to be decided by vote (remembering that Hanter casts the deciding vote.)
Perhaps a dark rosewood for binding.
Shadow multi piece rosette
BRW overlay, fingerboard, bridge
Top bevel
Florentine cutaway
Mahogany multipiece neck
Light Spanish cedar internals.
Other details to be determined.

The first consideration is whether to use the mahogany as a binding or use it for purfling. If used for purfling it will certainly add sparkle but wont be as noticeable as if it was used as binding. If it is used as binding then there would be a dark/white?/dark purfling line separating it from the body. Or perhaps a dark/mahogany/dark line. Details will be forthcoming as this project ripens.

Hereís the two options.

There is a lot of top showing and not much side. (Cocobolo) the ticket is to visualize the grouping with more side.
