This has been about a 6 month project. The body is Bocote I saw the Bocote lumber in the Woodcrafters store and fell in love with it. The neck is a maple after market production model. I didn't feel quite up to trying to build one to hold up under the strain of 12 strings. I didn't like the contrast of the maple headstock, so I re-sawed some of the Bocote down to about 1/16 inch and laminated the headstock with it. All in all I'm very pleased with the look. I'm still playing with the setup but it plays nice.
