    Here is another fun one I thought I'd share, a maple topped Belle with a Dusenberg multibender bridge.

    Some basic specs
    24" scale
    African mahogany / khaya body
    flame maple top and head cap
    rosewood fretboard with bone inlay
    BG-Pups Custom Blues neck and BG A3 Rockwind bridge
    4 way rotary switching
    Dusenberg Multibender bridge
    Tru Oil finish

    Thanks! .. I am very happy how she turned out and I am also very happy with my Belle model in particular.
    The body shape draws from some of the greats that came before me. The bottom bell was Gibson EH inspired, the sexy Barbie Doll waist is reminiscent of a 30's Oahu's Tonemaster, and the tapered upper bout a nod to the iconic hollow neck Weissenborn.

    Here is a rough pic of the next Belle in some real nice sapele.

    Thanks Loni, it is a nice hunk of wood. With any luck I'll be starting the grain filling today.
