I think both are going to be head turners, but the leopard wood especially! The bridge plate is laminated, spruce and Lapacho. Lapacho is also known as ipe, a very hard wood. Theyíre actually made from offcuts from the sides of one of these guitars.

Iím almost certain that Iím going to go for it. Both the Lapacho and the leopard wood guitar will be built with the same general design theme as the Birdseye guitar I built last year. Hereís a
photo for those who didnít see it.
