It looks like a solid rosewood, or even solid pau ferro neck? I mean, don't get me wrong - I love Canada, or blood-red bats, or whatever that whack pickguard is - why, some of my best friends are blood-red bats - but all that beautiful wood, dude, come on.... :blob7:
P.S. (When you get to the point where you have a leftover part and you start thinking, "Hmmm - I better make another guitar to use up that pickup spring" - well... you're in the right place now. :binkybaby
the pickguard kills the effect of the lacewood, which isn't good. if you absolutely have to have a maple leaf i would get a plain black pick guard and stecil one on and paint it. i wouls also use a subdued color like silver/gray, not red.
