    McCarty.
    Birdseye maple neck.
    Ebony board.
    Swamp ash back.
    Neck natural with a hint of honey, back to match.
    Top - I think a two tone orange/yellow blend - might be a new combo, but you've used the theme.
    Gold hardware.

    Back wood: Macassar Ebony w/ Red quilted cavity covers
    Neck wood: Color matched Quilted maple (super rare)
    Color: A take from the Holcomb burst. (Dark smoked edges that fade into a subtle red which fades into a dark charcoal burst in the center) natural maple binding.

    Put some matching red birds on the BACK of the neck. Sticking with maple neck(white tiger). That would look sick!

    I like the idea of smoke burst white tiger with a red glow inside the smoke. If I went that route, I might do that dog hair type finish on the hog back. Would look cool, front would have that dark ebony board with white tiger and back would be opposite with white tiger maple neck and the dark dog hair color body.

    What model should we do (has to be 22 frets)- SC-250, SC 250 semi-hollow, or custom 22 with adjustable bridge
    What should the back wood be? Mahogany or Cocobolo
    What should the neck wood be? Spruce, Maple, or Mahogany
    What COLOR should it be? White Tiger or Dragon's Breath

    I'm looking forward to seeing what the model will be be.

    @Brian G: This is an amazing approach!

    It´s obvious which model I will suggest!

    What model should we do (has to be 22 frets)- 513, one of the most versatile but most underrated guitar model (Hardware: Gen III Vibratosystem)
    What should the back wood be? Cocobolo
    What should the neck wood be? Maple w/ maple or ebony fretboard
    What COLOR should it be? Satin finish! Top Black Gold without any burst, back and neck natural finish, headstock maple veneer in Black Gold.

    Black Limba body with Quilt Maple backplates that are stained Fire Red Glow Smokeburst

    Black hardware, black pickup rings, Ebony tuner Buttons

    #2. McCarty Singlecut with Regular Headstock

    Curly Maple neck stained Fire Red Burst
    Black hardware, black pickup rings

    #4. McCarty w/ Adjustable Stoptail
    I have to make a note here. I dont LOVE using white tiger and white wash - I think it doesnt let the quilt pop. But, a lot of you were interested.

    White Tiger
    Matching headstock with red burl private stock Eagle and MOP outlines (just like fretboard)
    Curly Maple tuner buttons stained red to match birds
    Red Curly maple binding on top and headstock
    Swamp Ash body White Wash with red grain filler
    Korina neck - white wash
    Red bird on the heel
    Mixed hardware, 58/15s brushed nickel covers
