Agreed. Likely light 'nut or Korina with a very subtle stain on it. But prob Walnut. (The top, that is. Bottom isn't 100% obvious either, but probably hog.)

I would agree with that. I just saw the same photo they posted on Instagram, and I see the stripey grain that I didn't see in the photo at first.

Walnut is cooler either way :D but it's acoustic, so cedar makes sense!

That would be such a cool Aries if half of that beautiful top wasn't carved off.

Once again there are no CS models in stock. They'll be discontinued before I can afford one, I just know it.

I always worry about that in the back of my mind, that's why I jumped on my second one.
On the plus side, Jeff has one tattooed on his arm so maybe his soft spot will save it for a while...?

When talking about discontinuing the CT3, he mentioned they kept the CS3 because it sells well. :think:

Can confirm, have one in the oven. I think they don't have a lot in stock because they sell so fast.

The guy who got the koa Aries posted a NGD thread on Reddit, and posted some new pics to imgur:

That just confirms what I originally meant to post:

In my honest opinion, that guitar would look better without that middling looking flame top. The body wood looks rich, well figured, and like legit old growth koa. The top is meh, and this goes beyond my lukewarm feelings for flamed koa to begin with (I find it boring versus what koa can and does with the unpredictable qualities of its figure.

The body is KABOOM! You don't see an awful lot of stuff like that nowadays!

I'm digging the orange-on-burl look. I think it could look even better on certain specific types of burl, but then that would cost way way more to be able to specify a type/pattern/grade.
