    Here are the specs:

    1 piece Eastern matching front and back
    Mediterranean Blue
    Curly mahogany body
    50 year old Brazilian Rosewood neck and fingerboard with flame maple center piece
    Custom Star of David inlay at the 1st fret
    Nickel wraparound bridge
    Haussel Pickups-wooden pickup bobbins and rings-maple and rosewood

    After playing the guitar for a few hours after getting it home-I just have to say that Nik hit a homerun with this piece.

    Here's a link to the pics-I'm experimenting with Flash, so give it a minute to load.

    I changed this to a non-flash gallery for quicker load time. Hope that's better.

    I really like that . I also love the wraparound tailpiece on that one.

    Now that's an extremely nice guitar!

    Congratulations!
