A few more weeks of curing then final finishing and assembly. These are either Wenge/Maple/Purpleheart and Bubinga/Maple/Purpleheart.

Awesome! Very nice work. I love the look of the wenge top and back. It looks a lot like ebony. Is that the natural wood color or did you darken it?

Thanks! That's the natural Wenge color. These particular pieces were fairly straight grained with consistent dark color. Some of the more figured pieces can get quite a bit of lighter browns mixed in.

Thanks! I've been too busy lately to get a permanent site up and running however most of my builds can be seen here for the time being.

I tend to follow the "If you build it, they will come" methodology although that may change soon. These guitars have been claimed already but I may have another of my personal guitars I'll part with. Sending you a PM.

I'm fortunate to have acquired one of these builds. I couldn't be happier with how the purchase worked out. The axe is super fun and easy to play. Everything just feels rights. Anthony is a super cool guy and I love the guitar he made. I'm looking forward to putting my new axe to good use. Got a gig 12/9 and also New Year's.

Here's a quick tone test and some pics from my super cold garage (Detroit):

Sounds great Matt. Not sure how you can handle the cold! I wasn't ready for 19 degrees in the Northeast just yet!

Thanks Anthony. I really dig your axe. And yes, my fingers got progressively colder and the fluidity went out the window. Reminded me of playing trumpet with my brass quintet during the holiday season in the early 90's!
