Color Added

 I have applied the stains to the two F-5s. #12011 with quilted maple back and sides and "tortoise" bindings.

 The front of #12011 showing the special block inlays

 #12012 is very traditional, but I felt it needed a little flair at the bottom of the fretboard.

 Traditional ivoroid bindings, and rosewood heelcap.

 This one also has a very nice one-piece curly maple back that I had been saving for a few years.

I matched the back with a neck that had a very similar flame pattern so the stripes would carry through from top to bottom.
