That's like something I'd see in a nicotine patch lucid dream after using the Exorcist as my evening nightlight at bedtime.

That's pretty dang cool looking. Usually only see those on super custom guitars. A really great way to get a totally unique finish.

Still, IMHO it looks best with a solid, or maybe metallic undercoat. Seems like a waste with exotic topwoods.

will it be available with natural body binding?

i would agree...but I think it could still look killer on flamed maple. i see so much flamed maple (and similar-looking sycamore) in so many building lobbies and elevators that I'm immune to it's "exotic-ness" (even though my all-time fav guitar is my CS6. ;) and it's the 'standard' wood on several models), I think it could still be cool to see clear flamed maple with black crackle, as long as the cracks were fairly wide (which I'm not always a fan of, otherwise).

LOVE the finish. HATE the cost.
