I've only seen custom ebony builds but they were extremely heavy.

EDIT:Ebony is infamous for dulling cutting tools since it's a dense wood.
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!

Big blocks of high-quality ebony are rare and expensive, so it's not a regular production material. You could track a slab down, but you're probably looking at spending at least $500 on the wood alone. Then you have to pay a luthier to make it, and ebony is tough to work, so you'd be paying extra. But you could always have an ebony veneer stuck on top of something else.

Alembic will make you one if you take out a second mortgage on your house. Beyond that, I've seen only guitars and basses with ebony tops. It would be as heavy as hell and it would be susceptible to checking around the edges, but it might be pretty cool.
