    DGT - Buckeye Burl - #8367
    This piece is absolutely bonkers just as is, almost feel bad for turning it in to a guitar (almost). Supposedly they've never done a DGT with a Buckeye top before too, so that's pretty cool.​

    Specs:
    • Buckeye Burl top
    • Black limba body w/ matching back-plates
    • Korina neck
    • Ebony fretboard
    • Buckeye Burl veener w/ Sparkle MOP outline Eagle
    • Ebony fretboard
    • Sparkle MOP outline birds w/ Buckeye Burl center
    • 58/15LT pick-ups
    • Smoked hardware
    • Ebony tuner buttons, knobs, switch tip, and pick-up rings
    • Satin Nitro finish

    You may recognize that neck from The Private Stock Friday thread.

    • Honduran Rosewood neck
    • African Mahogany body w/ matching back plates
    • Figured Hormigo fretboard and veneer
    • Ebony Birds w/ Paua outlines

    • Ebony tuner buttons, knobs, switch tip, and pick-up rings
    • 58/15LT pick-ups

    Good grief! If I start squirreling away today, I may have enough 14 months from now, when these are done!

    Outstanding selections!
    That HB 2 should be amazing...how do you decide which piece of redwood goes on top?
    What’s the story with the already near finished neck?
    Are they making extras?

    Might be a bit quicker than you think, the Custom 24 is going to be finished around June.

    I'm not positive how the available necks became a thing, but I am not mad about it at all. They were all super cool in their own right, but that was definitely (IMO) the coolest of the bunch. And something I never wouldn't have thought to do. The Hormigo is stunning and the inlay work is killer.

    As far as tops... Just gotta pick the right one ;)

    Amazing what nature can produce, what Paul can make, and what Brett can pick.
