In addition, there are several options available that allow you to customize the look and performance of your Megatar:

The "Add Stripes" option improves the stability, stiffness, and clarity of tone by adding several strategically placed strips of denser and more rigid tone woods to the neck.  It also adds a lot to the aesthetic experience, making the most of the neck-through design and allowing you to personalize the look and performance of your Megatar. 

The "Add Figured Core" option offers an easy way to add some serious appeal to the look of your instrument.  It calls for a heavily figured piece of hard maple wood to be used for the central spine of the instrument,  as in the samples below:

The "Full Custom" option allows you to choose the species and arrangement of the neck and body woods.  For more information on wood choices, click here.  All of the instruments pictured on this site so far have been "Full Custom" builds.
