I want to try something a bit different, always wanted to try an ebony fretboard on a maple neck. I hear that ebony is rather bright, would the combination of an ebony neck with an ash body be too bright?
That looks nice! I just ordered a one piece swamp ash body and the maple/ebony neck. If the grain looks nice on the body, I may just do an oil finish like yours, otherwise, a solid color nitro.
