    Hi Guys
    In this thread I'd like to introduce the building steps of my new Rusti Paradox #7...I'm the lucky owner of the Paradox #1 Koa ( look at the thread http://www.sevenstring.org/forum/showthread.php?t=313203&highlight=Rusti+paradox)...by far one of the best guitar I ever owned ,so I decided to order another one...and this time Claudio proposed me an outstanding wood combination.

    Here the spec:
    -Six string
    -Ziricote top, fretboard and headstock
    -swamp ash body
    -5 piece neck pau ferro/ ebony
    -ivoroid binding body neck and headstock
    -sperzel locking tuners black/chrome
    -shaller hannes bridge
    -bkp juggernaut camo battlewarn set

    The top with white bindinh will look fantastic, although I'm personally not a huge fan of that same-wood-for-everything concept.

    I'm trying to do something different! Claudio and me have thought a lot about it. No regrets on wood choice...

    Super clean work! Like the idea of a topped headstock backside.

    As with anything IMO, a maple board would have been sick as well.

    That being said, ziricote is my favorite laminate/exotic wood. It looks so good!!

    I do prefer the greyer pieces though.

    god I love the white binding against the ziricote, and how all the pieces flow into each other. super hot build.
