    While I would have never done that to a zebrano top (looked gorgeous already), I think it looks fucking insane!! The binding brings it up a little more, and the intense colors on the rosewood compliment it really well.

    superb choice maing.

    edit: what about hardware color?

    Looks very natural and plant-like, unlike some neon abominations one can see around.

    I would have never thought to stain a Zebrano top before, but Jesus Christ Monkey Balls, that looks AMAZING. :yesway:
