Nice top, Daniel. Does it qualify as a "10" top? Body timber? Natural finish?

Little confused, couldn't find a "534" - is this a 34" version of the 535? Any options? And what's the expected build time?

Sorry for all the questions, since I build myself I'm just keen to see what you get for your money.

Regards,
Michael

Yes it is a '10' top, yes it is a 34" inch scale, hence the 534. I specifically requested it.
Northern lightweight ash body
Asymmetrical Maple neck, Pau Ferro fingerboard
Hand rubbed blue burst stain all over the body, headstock and truss rod covers/backplates.
6 month approx build time.

Thanks, Dan,

Can't wait to see how the blue works on this top, the ash will look spectacular for sure.

Post update pics (if you get any ...).

I had the same though. becoming a builder.

Does it cost much more for a custom one off?
