rear 30 by vankuilenburg rear 30 by vankuilenburg
here's the latest piece i finished, number 30. it's a solid flame mahogany body strat w/a flame mahogany neck, and an ebony fretboard w/ a dragon inlay. it's the first piece i've completed that is a collaboration w/my good friend Jerry Kaisersmyth. he's the one responsible for the fretboard and the rad gvk pickguard. the body is extra thick as i wanted to push myself on depth, so i had to dish out the back for weight. it's still a pretty heavy strat, and has humongous tone. for some reason, i was obsessed w/3's on this piece, so there are a lot of things in groups of three(3 layers throughout the carving etc.).
jerry and i will be collaborating more in the near future, so stay tuned.
hope you guys like it:)

Fantastic design.

What does an ebony fretboard sound like? I've never played one...
Reply
:iconvankuilenburg:
vankuilenburg Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2010
it's a really hard tonewood, so it tends to add brightness. thank you by the way:)

Ah, interesting. Is it brighter than maple? I tend to favour rosewood fretboards, boring as I am.
