While I was out for the LA Amp show, Leonc and I paid a visit to Ron's shop. I went in without much in the way of preconceived notions. Primarily because I wanted to experiment, but don't have much experience with any 'exotic' woods. After much discussion, these are the specs: Body: White Limba, 2 " thick Finish: Santana Orange in a burst Top: wide flametop (I went in with the idea of fine pinstripe!) Fretboard: Cocobola (some nice orangy browns) Neck: Birdseye maple Inlays: Orange Firesuns, and motorcycle handlebars on the neck joint Wooden pickup rings and tone/vol controls Paua purfling Natural flame binding 5 way blade, with coil tap on the tone knob Pickups: haven't made a decision yet. Honestly I may wait until Ron has it all finished, and then get his assessment on how the guitar sounds tonally/acoustically, and then proceed from there. While out there, I got to see some great guitars made for Big Mike, Nick Vig, and Carl Werkmeister. Carl's was the most visually stunning guitar I've laid eyes on. He really went the distance on this guitar. Now the wait begins!
