From the link in the first post:
Swamp Ash body
Redwood Top & Headcap
5 pc Maple/Purpleheart Neck
Ebony fretboard w/ Koa Binding
DiMarzio SD2 p/u's
5 way switch
series/single/parallel miniswitches
push/pull tone adds bridge p/u
That guitar looks awesome! You can see by the controls that it's going for a Tiger sound, but from the looks it's just tasteful and really well done! Especially nice lines around the body, and their nicely echoed in the headstock - which is also really well done. There are so many ugly headstocks out there, it's rare to find a really nice one that is also unique.

Thank you all again for your kind words. It is not a carve top. It has a 1/2' roundover all around the body and a slight belly carve. It looked so good as is that after much debate,I decided not to do any comfort carve in the cutaways.
