That 1 piece top was ugly imo. And it would have to blow me for 17k.
ALL Rosewood is now in the Cites Treaty.I don't think using Brazilian rosewood for the fingerboard for the 60th anniversary 59 LP would be a wise move in this day and age of created restrictions and gov't interference and red tape if you plan to sell more than a couple of guitars world wide.
Because "Bolivian Rosewood" sound more like "Indian Rosewood" and/or "Brazilian Rosewood." If you call it Pau Ferro, people are going to be thinking "WTF is that?" "Is that more like Grandillo or Richlite?"Yeah, figured that one out quickly and edited my post, heh . Now just wondering why they decided to go with Bolivian Rosewood instead of Pau Ferro. Maybe because Fender was already using the term Pau Ferro?
