I built this one for my sister a few years ago. Body is Honduran mahogany. Top is Western red cedar. Neck is mahogany, flame maple and walnut. Binding is flame maple. Rosette and end graft are burl maple. She asked me to put a beveled armrest on to help with her arm issues. A little tough to see in the pic as it’s mahogany as well. 12 frets to the body and old style slotted headstock. K & K pickup just in case. Sounds great!

Very well done. The arm rest shows up just fine in the pic, nice touch.
