What a great use of the figure of the wood! I especially liked the inner and outer rings as an accent to the center.

Seriously, that's a tasty start for a new year. Beautiful work. And happy new year too - eventually.

Thanks for the kind words fellas. Making a spec guitar out of wood like this is a pulse-raising adventure. It seems like a leap of faith. (An expensive one.) But every time I see it taking shape out in the shop I smile, and know someone, somewhere is going to love this.

HereóIíll pose a question for you guys: what sort of neck would you pair with this wild set of B & W ebony? Iíve been engaged in other tasks and really havenít thought much about this feature. All answers welcomed! Best answer wins a bucket of Texas snow.

Default neck

Something to compliment the colors but not compete with the figure. How about one-piece mahogany, stained black? Alternately, a nice solid maple neck, but without flame. Definitely no backstrip, so no stripe down the neck either. Not that I'm against them in principle - they look superb on that walnut CS, by the way - but I think you shouldn't distract the eye from that glorious back, or that stunning rosette either.

That is my thinking as well. There is so much light wood, and it might be hard to match the tan/sand color, I think a dark/black would be the way to go.

+1 on this with the addition of maybe a black but satin/matte (not shiny) black neck as a proposal - provided the owner likes it. Optically I think it would be great.

I think you might consider a one-piece Maple neck with a little stain to match some of the lighter areas of the B & W Ebony. A fully black neck may draw the eye away from the back - - if that's possible.

Definitely a black neck all the way with a backstrap of B&W. I'd go gloss on it too--somehow seems like it would work better than a matte one in the grand scheme of things.

Beautiful set of woods, guys--can't wait to see how it all turns out.

Wow Nice rosette. I really like the way the outer and inner bands are seem to be the same wood as the larger inner band but have a distinctness and pattern that is proportional to their width and different from the center.

You could do a maple neck with back trim, or perhaps even a solid black neck would look very distinctive. I think i would stick with the colors in the back and avoid something like mahogany or Spanish cedar. (Since you solicited advice). Maybe a spalted maple neck with black center striping. What is the binding going to be.

I vote for a lighter colored neck with a black sunburst fading black to lighter in the neck shaft area to black again at the peghead. Beautiful build thus far guys. Maybe a book matched BW Ebony peghead veneer from the waistís waste.

This sounds good to me too. Fantastic wood, just amazing!

Have fun

If its a one-piece neck, I'd go for one that is stained fully black. If multi-piece neck, perhaps black-stained wood on the outer and center strip from the same b/w ebony.
