    scrapped my last 2 builds with black and white Ebony wood, worst wood I’ve used. Warped, cracked, not easy to work with sold it on eBay so I didn’t lose to much, which leads me into this crazy ass hollowbody build. Used curly silver maple very pleased with this one.

    In many parts of Indiana, that is pronounced "Oinj".

    Great work as always, Brian!

    That is crazy cool looking! I am loving the paint job, and that headstock is beautiful. Is this for you or for someone else?
