    Got into an argument with a white night on the Caparison Facebook group. I posted this image of a headstock from a period of poor build quality from them. The neck wood isn't much nicer either. I pointed out the huge knot at the scarf joint and said that sometimes dud guitars can be made...

    So I'm contemplating wood choices for my first build. I was thinking swamp ash body with a Birdseye maple neck and fret board. Its going to be a voyager body but a 7 string. Any opinions on how it will sound? The body will be balanced so I know it won't have moar left side toan.
