    Solid Honduran Mahogany body, African Mahogany neck, Rosewood fretboard/bridge, 36mm nut, 0.650" neck thickness at the 1st fret, & all black UPT Tuners.

    He also made a new mold that is more in the shape of a Martin.

    Oh, and he used Black TUSQ for the nut/saddle instead of his usual black acrylic.

    Here are pictures of the new mold versus the old mold. He used his Martin style-0 to show the difference between the two. I like both, but since he made a new mold I went with that one.
