    i do agree at times it can be too much. I feel the same way when there are lot of wood species on a build to that differ so much in visual character. I honesty would have loved to seen it in honey burst on the top with a ebony board, black limba body and neck

    I don't entirely agree with this, but I do think multiple colours gets too "busy" for playing. How about one colour? And pick the lightest from the glow, or a complementary colour.

    Sometimes wood just needs to be wood. Why mess with its natural beauty? If it were up to me, I'd just clear coat the entire guitar and be done with it. Thats just me though. I just prefer my wood naked... oh...um... nevermind... :)

    Don't see a stained maple neck matching a natural black lmba back...either natural flamed maple neck (would they do a three piece neck?) or black limba with Ebony board for a brighter sounding take on the 594....or Honduran RW neck with Ebony board.

    watch light fade from every room. Pin prick holes in a colorless sky let inspired figures of light pass by. The mighty ...

    Pernambuco neck! If we get enough votes maybe it will happen.

    I vote cocobolo for the fretboard.

    Hmm, can't decide between flamed maple neck, unstained, with similarly flamed maple fretboard, or black limba neck with cocobolo fretboard...

    OK, black limba neck to match body and cocobolo neck!

    OK folks-
    I tallied everything up - looks like Black Limba neck with Ebony fretboard with no heel cap wins!
    So now we have a
    594 Semi-Hollow
    One piece Quilt Top
    Subzero Glow
    Natural Black Limba body and neck
    Ebony fretboard

    Question #6
    WHAT SHOULD THE INLAY MATERIAL AND HEADSTOCK OVERLAY BE?
    Tips:
    -The inlays will be birds with outlines and headstock will have the PS eagle (I dont believe we can use 20th birds on a 594)
    -The fretboard and headstock will have natural curly maple binding and to keep the price in check, no purfling suggestions please.
    -My thought is that for headstock veneer the only options are quilt stained Subzero or Ebony to match the board, but Im open to suggestions!
