Warmoth had the nicest koa top available on showcase and I took it right away! 

Body: Black Korina, Koa top
Neck: Wenge, Ebony w/inlay

I'm thinking bartoloni pickups w/NTBT preamp. 

I "brightened" the pics a bit to show the more of the detail of the wood grain.

Pretty badass, but that combo is heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeavy. My VW is Koa and black korina, and it's a heavy mofo... :sad:

Not sure about the weight;  but if you gotta lug something around, she might as well be purty :icon_tongue:

Yup it's heavy. Actually the neck is much heavier than the body.  Neck dive is pretty bad, too.  I just put on some schaller tuners and realized that weight is too much.  So, I guess I'll have to put lite tuners on and drill extra holes...DOH! :sad1:
