    Can't wait to see this build, my SS8 is still my favourite guitar several years and a few guitars on!

    I don't even know how people find tops like that in that sort of thickness. Most of the exotic wood vendors 'round here seem to go out of business faster than I can establish a report.

    You mean rapport? Or are you that mysterious bloke who keeps filing reports about all the local wood suppliers, causing them all to close after OSHA violations are discovered?!

    :lol:

    I thought you'd go for CITES instead of OSHA.

    Or else a report like a firecracker going "bang," or just a rapport and I don't know how to spell.

    Also does custom cabinetry?...

    Can he build me a guitar that also functions as a cabinet, thereby allowing me to store all of my cables, picks, extra strings, tuner, capo, slide, etc inside? :lol:

    Jokes aside, that top posted is GEORJUS
