Walnut and tulip poplar like the last one but I have modified the pickup cavities to be able to accept virtually any pickguard/pickup combination... I am building this one for me...

I love the look with two cover Humbuckers. Just what Classic should look like. Gonna be sweet.

Maybe... ;)There is a guy in town who bought the first one I built just like this one and he has been recording and playing out with it a lot. He is a licensed musician for the Boston Red Sox via reverbnation as well and is coming out with a new album soon. He uses that guitar a lot and is a much better player than I am. He is also an official Taylor Acoustic Guitar endorser. You can search him on Facebook and his name is Mike Gladstone.

Gonna have a brown tortise pickguard with HSS configuration and Tesla pickups. VR-Extreme in the bridge and Opus-S1 middle and neck positions. Neck will be olivewood with pistachio fingerboard.
