Congrats on your bun in the oven.

I'm in too.

A6H
scarlet red
master grade cocobolo neck
master grade cocobolo fretboard
red staggered dot inlays
EVO med-jumbo frets
12" radius
gold hardware
gold Berillium covered pups with gold pole pieces
cocobolo backplate
gold strap locks
reversed pointy headstock

It should look pretty much like the red Aries they were showing as a sample of the run.

Wow. Both builds are spec'd out to be gorgeous. I can't wait to see 'em!

I think this run is going to be pretty successful and some of us are going to regret not going for it. The options are fantastic and the finishes ... I couldn't decide.

Savor the wait ... 8)

What exactly constitutes a master grade cocobolo neck and fretboard? I'm assuming there was an upcharge.

Indeed. That number was picked by Zak (for an unknown reason).

I don wonder if they ended up selling any Almost Green. I know they hadn't by the end of the first day. :think:

Correct. There was an upcharge for "a really nice piece of cocobolo".

How much of an upcharge was that? I'm going to blindly guess $100.

I'm kind of surprised that people were not going for the Almost Green. I thought the color looked great with the baked finish on the fretboard. But, I should be quiet since I'm not in the run. :?

Same. That and the special Aurora were my two faves, and they hadn't sold any the first day...but I also didn't put any money where my mouth is. :wink:

That's very classy looking. I love the neck/body color combo. How are you liking Cocobolo? Did you notice the how it smells?
