More specs and features that John missed:

African Blackwood bindings with Fiddleback Tree faded Arm Bevel
Fiddleback Tree faded Endgraft
ďShadow MosaicĒ Rosette featuring BRW, Fiddleback Tree, Abalone, Spalted Maple, Padauk Burl
Back Decor featuring faded Fiddleback Tree with Abalone Trim
Fiddleback Tree Heel Cap
Multiscale length of 25.5 - 25.0
EVO Gold Fret Wires
Multi-piece laminated satin Neck of Honduran Mahogany, African Blackwood, Fiddleback Tree
Side Markers in Padauk Burl with brass tubing
ďRosey TrinityĒ Peghead featuring Brazilian Rosewood Front, Cocobolo Backstrap & Madagascar Rosewood Tuner Buttons on Gold Gotoh 510ís
