I built this one along with the SJ in a previous post together so that I could finish them at the same time. Finishing is such a PITA that I wanted to do them at the same time. This is a figured maple OOO 12 fret with a three piece back using leopard wood. I also used leopard for the binding. Coco fingerboard and bridge. EM6000 on this one too.

BTW - I sent a few photos of a couple of my builds using EM6000 and they have the pictures on their website... (and I guess Instagram too...)

That's a really nice 12 fret Steve, and the finish is outstanding.
Just came across a 12 fret OOO template in "the pile" today strangely enough...

This photo reveals the figure better than the other photos. My photography could be improved...

It’s a nice contrast to have the binding match the neck wood. Or at least contrast the body the same way.
Nice looking????
