    Roasted maple neck with Ipe fretboard reclaimed from the old Coney Island boardwalk. Sheesh, I'd never try pine for a neck!! Cappy, I should send you a neck with this awesome reclaimed wood while it's still available! Or, what-the-hell, an entire guitar!

    Go for it, Doc! The patient is in your capable hands!
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.

    A walnut guard will complement that colour perfectly. Looking good Doc.
