I do like the neck nemoman posted, in that the headstock looks to be floating off in a disembodied way. Almost.

Keep the ideas coming, and thanks again,

Steve
I like it too. It would look even better with flames flickering at the neck headstock junction. Like a Phoenix or one of Danre's rings.

I've had the opportunity to look at this one a lot in person, have decided it's one of my favorite bodies aesthetically that i've seen, and i think one of the things I love about it is the monochromatic-esque thing going. I'm a fan of the look and characteristics of a laminated neck and would probably do something gray/black/ivory on this...maybe spalted maple on the sides with a strip of bog oak (or ABW or Ebony) down the center? That would be a heavy neck, but the ebony on the body will help offset it a little. I've also seen some gray pieces of wenge that would look sweet on this. A gray piece of Walnut?

All that said, as others have pointed out, you have some orange/brown in the center of the back that would match the right piece of mahogany very well and would still look stunning.

I can't wait to see this one under finish!

John’s “Show me more” has seemed to open a Pandora’s box. Just to fan the flames, here’s a pic of one of the last ebony guitars we built.

We should report for any nay-sayers that the above black/maple neck was at the customer’s request. It matches the black top which is not visible in this shot.
But here is a black neck with a maple center stringer.
Y’all still like it?

Steve

I am keeping my mouth closed as Kathy often informs me I should do more often lol. Seems to be a pretty even split down the middle on this one although the air brushed orange 57 Chevy flames seem to be a little in the minority .

Thanks bro. What I see when I look at this pic is a need to mow the front lawn.

When she’s done decorating your shop, take her on the road. I need some hearts and rainbows in my shop too.

She provides a lot of free conversation too, but her candy fee is kind of high.
