So you specced it, he built it for you, then decided to sell your build to someone else last minute? If that's the case, this is pure trash business practices.This one is a beauty!! African Blackwood is very nice fretboard wood, super smooth and holds oil better than ebony so its always slick to play on. It's a very hard wood so no surprise the neck is very stable. Gorgeous Koa top too.
Short version to not derail the thread. I spec'd it out. Doug didn't want to sell it to me. Doug sold it at a loss to someone who immediately flipped it. I was only annoyed at the time because people kept messaging me to buy the guitar for an insane price(there was prize to whoever helped sell it). This was the push for Doug to nearly triple his base prices so it cost a lot of people. I didn't lose any money from it so I just moved on and got a similar spec build from another builder.
