That sounds awesome. Interested to see what the mahogany and walnut combo sounds like. Are you getting to choose the pieces of wood for the body, neck and fretboard?

Are you thinking jet black ebony, or some with chocolate brown streaks?

It's all yours mate, but I wouldn't have chosen the offset inlays - I've cutally like them but on top of that you see them on "not so premium" guitars made in the east.

The N2, and I have a Cratfer thin body acoustic that has them.

Man! that sentance is terrible!

"I've cutally like them"....was intended to be "I don't actually like them"

..I think Confused

Sorry Dawn, not meaning to diss your N2 in the slightest - just not to my taste.

I have 3 neck orders that I will be working on at the same time, this should save me time with equipment set up and tear down between each neck. Starlovin will be posting pics along the way....

Don't worry, its pretty dissable, when compared to an N4 but you know, beggars can't be choosers! Very Happy

awww, don't be that guy Jake.

Anyone (these days) labelled as 'mental' is usually known for being 'Colin Hunt' (annoying...):
