Mica:

I know you are busy and I have used up a lot of your time lately; yet, I think I have a good idea for a custom. I emailed you the other day with an initial thought , but after some consternation, I have a better idea.

I am having a Baritone Acoustic guitar built out of Macassar Ebony and Adirondack Spruce. I believe I would like to have an electric baritone, as well. Using your "Spectrum" body and book matched Macassar Ebony. Could we speak about other appointments?

Sorry, I don't know how to move it. Perhaps, a moderator will move it.

So Mica:

Fretboard: Ebony

Body: Book-matched Macassar Ebony front and back with wood inserts/access panels. How would the body laminations consisting of Ebony/ Alder/Myrtle/Alder/ Ebony work and look?

Neck: 7 piece-Myrtle/Ebony/Alder/Ebony/Alder/Ebony/Myrtle

Pups: (3) STR with individual switches instead of a 5 way switch

LEDs: Amber

Considering wood sample #3132 or #3128.

Awaiting feedback.

Scott, you don't have to move it, you can simply copy text and paste it in a new thread at "Dreaming... for now". Better than get upset in your hurry, doesn't it?

Well, I was told that They would begin building the neck this week. I have placed the deposit.

So the wait begins for my "Spectrum" baritone in Macassar Ebony with a Myrtle core and using 1/8" Birch laminations in the "Hippie sandwich". The neck will be a 7 piece using Mahogony, Ebony, Birch, and Walnut. It will have a 1.75" nut and will measure 2.25" at the 24th fret.
