... and now back to the shop.
I did a search and found out that Thomas Humphrey was using this combo towards the end of his career.
The sound? I thought that one example had a pretty lyrical sound. I may have to talk to Kris about whether he wants to try this combo for me.
wouldn't want a Luthier to use a combo he doesn't want to work with. very curious to here his opinion.
Thanks everyone. Will search for more audio clips myself. Hope I can find more

Any chance you would be willing to post pictures? I really like Birdseye maple
I think a light spruce top would compliment any lighter b/s material better but hats off to the guys that are playing with these different combinations. My first guitar was cedar/paduak steel string. I chose them because they showed the most potential as opposed to what they looked like together, turned out to be a great guitar.

below is a pic of how Humphrey turned this combo into a guitar that in appearance is a bit of a nod to
old violins. Is this just several layers of FP or a stain or what? I think she's quite a stunner.
