Thanks Louis,

I think the center cross grain strip would show up well even if it were a bit thinner. It's made from the same Padauk and is very bright. I went a bit thicker on this one because it has rather thin black borders. I usually have 3/32" maple borders but, since it's a maple neck, I went black to keep it crisp looking.
