African mahogany back, maple cap. The carve rises 3/8 inch above the edge of the top, total 5/8 of maple. I have a Brazilian fretboard with 6105 frets, dot markers. The body is bound on the top edge and if all goes according to plan, I will cut the neck pocket tomorrow.
The neck will join the body at the 19th fret.
Plans are for a cherry top, dark brown back, two humbuckers, one volume, two tone, and a three way switch, stop tailpiece, ABR-1 bridge.
