Wow, that looks like it's going to be really nice. What sort of ebony is that on the sides and back? I bet it will sound really great too.

All I know is it that it is called Black/White ebony, The image I posted is one they built in the recent past so I have not yet seen my piece of wood yet. The top will be spruce and the binding will be ebony, here is the image of the back of the one I posted earlier

Great combination of woods with the spruce top. As Tom Petty said, "the waiting is the hardest part."

I ordered the same wood in a tenor resonator. Mine will be started late April and completed late May.

I'm no luthier, but the sound hole looks too big to me. ;)

Of course, I'm kidding. Beautiful wood though!

Those look really great. What an exciting wood grain! I understand ebony has nice tonal qualities too.

I am so jealous, mine gets started late April with a May completion.
I am getting the same headstock plate with peghead tuners. Mine is not a lap steel.
I am getting an oil finish, yours ?

Strung and done, amazing people at Mya-Moe, they said the start date would be March 25 and the expected string date would be April 14, they hit both targets, amazing. I will post my own photos and review when she arrives.
