Default McNeill Slope D Sitka/EIR First Build

Alrighty! We are underway. Still have some time before I'm up in the queue but I am incredibly excited about this process. I've always looked for the perfect guitar...never dreamed of actually just designing exactly what I want.

Here is what I (and your eyes) have to look forward to:

- Standard scale 14-fret Slope D
- Sitka Top
- East Indian Rosewood Back & Sides
- Subtle Sunburst
- Florentine Cutaway
- Ebony or Blackwood Binding, Headstock and Backstrap
- Cocobolo top, fingerboard and headstock trim
- Likely cocobolo rosette of some sort (still mulling that over)
- Black Ebony fretboard with something around the 12th fret
- Gotoh 510 delta Shiny Gold tuners

I've got drawings and photos all laid out with design details and the back wood is on the way. I'll get some photos posted once it gets here and we get the ball rolling.

Scott is a pretty awesome guy. I'm really looking forward to the tail end of this year (and the process of getting there)!
