    ...can you guess what it is?

    Specs: Solid mahogany body and neck, 1/2" maple carved top, ebony board, body and neck bound and inlaid w/abalone, Tone-Pros bridge, string through body, EMG® 85 neck/81 bridge, 24 3/4" scale, medium jumbo frets, 12" radius, finish is satin over black "wash" stain. It's a very cool guitar and in person it looks like a black and white photo with the binding done in color - it's a very nice effect. Very solid feeling and a great playing guitars. Sounds great with the EMG's (much to my surprise) :)

    Hint: You can't buy this in stores....yet ;)

    Some small builder's version of a set neck guitar that has not previously offered a set neck model? Suhr perhaps?

    Interesting...Hondo and Suhr...pretty much covers two ends of the spectrum right there.

    Hint: It's a small builder somewhere in between those two :)

    Note: The back and neck finish is actually not flat black as it looks in the pics. It's a dark black stain over mahogany and you can see the nice grain through it. Like I said, very cool.

    By the looks of the binding and inlays and EMGS my vote is BC rich.

    The body is shaped like one of the older Aria Pro II guitars.
