Insta-custom! Ok, not quite, but you get to see most of the show in one day since I collected a few images for you, but didn't get your public thread going until today.

In assembly getting the shielding for the inside of the body done:

The above picture shows the inside of the Coco Bolo only.

Prepped and ready for a coat of spray here:

The back is every bit as pretty as the front. Might be hard to see in the snapshot, but the back of the peghead is Coco Bolo.

Congratulations Ed!

Just beautiful. I usually don't like coco bolo or tributes visually, but this is stunning. Play it in good health.

I could see the back being mistaken for Koa, but it's Mahogany. Very nice Mahogany!

Ed:

WOW! The cocobolo sure is sweet! And a second to Mica, that's VERY nice mahogany. You're going to have a lot of fun playing this one. Welcome to the club.

Bill, the guitar one

That's awesome. I didn't think the Stage Tribute was a carved top - was that a special request on your part?

I really love that back (and the front, actually)!
