The headstock is black. I'm sure the USA model will have a matching headstock.
Its a rosewood fretboard, but its very dark. Probably dyed, because I have black residue on my fingers from playing for the last couple of hours. I like the shape a lot more than the hellraiser I had.
I don't know if the top is a veneer or not. Looks sweet what ever it is. Maybe I should return it because its not tobacco burst.
