What a beauty with a beautiful coherent balance between the flamed maple body and neck. The combination of a maple body with a mahogany neck always disturbed me a bit particularly as maple necks are standard on bowed instruments for instance. Marvelous sound with strong low register! Very, very tempting! :D :wink:

thank you es335

the choice of the neck was not a easy decision becouse of the weight but in the end i believe i have made the best decision, this is a double sides guitar and balanced is very good for the player, a bit more heavy then the tradicional cedar but IMO more interesting in the eyes :)

That's an impressive build; every bit a work of art & work of nature (the flamed markings on the maple)......great sounding instrument too :bravo:
