    Please stop draining your bodily fluids just to gauge the absorbancy.

    Those boards are absolutely stunning and that fret-work is truly amazing.

    This is more exciting than when I thought Zirocashter was a new cryptocurrancy! It seems great bodily harm is not enough to slow down the mighty pondman. You are more tenacious than Monty Python's Black Knight!

    Awesome! cant wait to see how this turns out.

    These days i only use ziricote fb's, they just look so good. I'm also seriously considering doing a mahogany/ziricote body for the next build and after seeing this i think i going to have to do it. Unfortunately ill having to import the ziricote top, i cant find anywhere in aus that stock fb's let alone tops. It will probably end up being a very thin guitar, the mahogany ive got is only 25mm thick and i doubt ill find a thick ziricote top cheaply, so a thin acoustic top it will be!

    Back of the neck is a work of art as usual man.

    Glad your hand healed so fast, that was gnarly to see.
