But this - this is rich, strong, bold. Like fine espresso or dark chocolate. The walnut and ebony should look and sound great together.
I thought the same as you Bob. I was envisioning a Gibson Black Beauty les paul.
I think you're right. Mike's Icon will have the fine espresso/dark chocolate feel. I can't wait to see it.
