    Not certain yet if it's going to be contoured or double bound.

    Double Bound would be fun, and look killer. Contour is for comfort. I suck so I gotta look good :rofl:

    Ah, got it. Slab side means flat. All too obvious.

    I've always figured if I put a flashy guitar out in front of me I can distract their attention from my playing! :rofl:

    Mum's the word tho, K?:fingersx:

    Mine won't be far behind! Working out the final details of what I want and coming up with the down payment.

    Someone go to the classifieds and buy something...

    As far as ebony, it can run from black thru red to cream....

    I love the streaked multicolor ebony....

    Well, call me a dumb-ass for asking this, but what is a "slab" Strat?

    I poked around and the only reference I can find is to a slab fretboard as opposed to a veneered one.
