Is it carved top body?
Yes, carved flame maple top (obviously), and mahogany back.
A Wenge/Ebony would look great!
Nice body!!! The color is going very nice!
Thank you. I'm having fun with this, and it's really going well, no mistakes so far.
The color is black RIT dye (fabric dye), which was sanded back a little, then my own mix of vintage maple and lemon yellow alcohol based dye.
The back was left natural because there's some cool grain going on in the mahogany.
