Hi again, Mica!

I know I've not been real concerned with "Gingerbread" on my Bass, but what would be involved with Purpleheart Pinstripes between my Maple body Lams and CocoBolo top and back? Would that be included in the Deluxe, or is there an upcharge? Also, If it wouldn't make any difference, I'd like to have Birdseye Maple for the Body Lams. I think it would look good with the contouring, where you could see the "eyes". Any feedback?
Also, please make sure my Work Order specifies the Hollow Core. I know it's standard on the Deluxe, but I just want to be positive. I'm not gettin' any younger (UGH!).
Thanks a lot, Mike.......

Adding a small accent veneer like you've requested is not an extra charge on the Sig Deluxe. In fact, it's a good thing you have similar tastes to my mom, because she was thinking the same thing and wrote your work order up the very same way!

I can't use Bird's-eye Maple for accent lams - there no guarantee that there would be eyes falling right on the little 1/8" edge for you to even see. Actually, your body was constructed on February 22, so it's already got the regular Maple accent lam - check the build record later for a photo update.

Hollow is standard, and indeed your work order instructs for a hollow core construction.

Hi, Mica!

Thanxxx for the update. The birdseye was really no big deal, anyway. Just a thought. But that's pretty cool about the pinstripe:-) And, my back thanks you for the hollow core!
Thanxxx again, Mike.....
