Here is my latest build, a maple OM with maple neck and binding. Something different...

That's a guitar anyone would be lucky to own. Beautifully done.

Thanks guys. I should call it "Blond Ambition"... I found this nice figured maple board and decided it needed to be made into a guitar. My original inspiration was this guitar...

But, I decided to forgo the maple fingerboard and bridge and go with ebony. It has a black and white thing going. Rather than contrasting binding, I went with maple.

You make nice looking guitars, Steve. I suspect they play and sound great, too. Well done! [clap]
