Beautiful. String it up in Bb and I'm ready to go.

Re: what top body?

It doesn't matter, just paint it solid black and off we go

Tonally I think that most of the woods have a place, but visually I care more about the indiviudal piece of lumber rather than the "overall" appearance of "that type" of wood.

There are so many "figured maple guitars" and only a few of them I find interesting to look at.
