Here a pic of my old '57 Black Beauty, it was one of the very first coming out of the custom shop in 1993. It was caught in a guitar store fire, the day it was delivered. All hardware has been replaced as it obviously was ruined. It is clearly built the same way as a standard, just with a mahogany top instead of maple. A solid mahagony guitar, but not a one piece guitar.I'm not sure about that DR? I've been wrong before and no doubt will be wrong again, but to my knowledge, they're solid mahogany.
I need to get this thing back. My buddy owns it now, we made a trade for something in the early 00's, it's since had the neck replaced because it kept breaking.
