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.
