V Options

Hey guys, My brother is building me a rhoadsish style V and I'm trying to decide what wood pattern I want for the body. The 3 woods are Ash, Wenge and Flamed Purple Heart. I'm leaning toward option #2 (wenge back/ash strip/purple heart top) but it will probably be the biggest pain in the butt. I'd just like to know your opinion on which will look best.

I think it'd be interesting to see how #3 reacts with an oil finish, I really like the figuring in the light wood in it too. My vote is for #3.

Ok thanks guys, the one thing that you may already know is that the wenge is really heavy, so with the wenge on the back there will still be another piece of ash on the back.

My vote goes for #2 - it'll look like an ash pinstripe if you do it right.

The thing about #3 is that I think that just having the ash might take away from the color of the purple heart a little, the wenge complements the purple heart alot more I think, and with #2 I think the ash and wenge provide a really sweet contrast.

Change of plans, the ash may end up being flamed maple.
