This guitar is going to be a very cool experiment. The top will consist of Engelmann spruce with camphor burl veneered to the top. The idea is to have a wicked cool piece of wood on a carved top semi-hollow guitar. The result should be interesting. We are guessing that the top will be a littel more restrained which will be a benefit at higher gain settings. It will also look intense!
