How about making it all from Purpleheart?

That could be cool, but I don't have a particular dislike for my shoulder or back, so I'd stay away from a purpleheart body, I think. :wink:

Eh, it's not that heavy compared to something like Cocobolo or all Ebony.

Delos

Antique brown on mahogany, or clear on walnut.
Gloss
Red tortoise pickguard
White single coils with standard silver pole pieces
Chrome hardware
Maple/ebony 5 piece neck
Ebony board
Custom inlay: use the offset dot pattern, but only have one single dot at the 12 fret, on the edge of the fretboard. No other inlays.
Headstock to match the body
MOP logo

They did an Icon bass with purpleheart body wings. So, I think they are game for option 50 purpleheart bodies.

Between purpleheart body wings, tops, fretboards truss rod covers, control cavity covers and stringers in the 5-piece necks you could seemingly, theoretically, get an all-purpleheart guitar (if you stuck with metal knobs).

Not really related in any way, but I was reminded of these speakers sold at Fry's that were always advertised with a per-speaker price...and they seemed like an OK deal...but they were only ever sold in pairs. :lol:
