I am having a problem deciding what to do with my new kit. Back stripe or no backstripe?
Here are two pics of the wood, its a figured walnut from KMG. Its really nice wood and I am beginning to think a backstripe would take away more than add to the beauty. I went from wanting a d-45 style, to a thin pearl line, and now I am thinking no stripe at all. Let me know your thoughts.

You know what ... I am no expert, hell I am still working on my first build and constantly asking help for that.

Two things come to mind though. Firstly I know what I like and personally I wouldn't put a strip in that back. It looks beautiful the way it is. But that is what I, ME, NOBODY ELSE, likes and secondly linked to the first, unless you are building for someone else you need to go with what YOU like.

Just my thoughts

Who asked you? LOL OK...I did.
The guitar is for my brother but its a surprise, so I can do whatever I want since I do not have instructions. You are 100% correct. The wood is really nice. The grain has been joined flawlessly. Thats two votes for no strip.
Thanks Paul.

Bill, I knew you would vote for no strip!
So PaulF, Bill, and Martin vote for no strip, I pretty much voted for no strip and Ken Cierp said no strip when I was chatting with him yesterday.
Looks like I wont be stripping. I can hear the ladies breathing a sigh of relief...but I am talking about my back strip, so brace yourselves! LOL
No strip is how I am going. It would be a shame to interrupt such a nice book match. And it will also draw your eye away from the figure, which is not the point.
Thanks for your input everyone! It is greatly appreciated.

Hey now!! Honestly Kevin, NOBODY wants me to strip!
Thanks for your thought. A Californian's vote does count! I have a good friend in Thousand Oaks. He does not play or care about guitars though, so I didnt ask him for his opinion. You on the other hand, play and more importantly BUILD!! So your vote absolutely counts.

Here is the vote from a stripfan. But my friends call me the notorious pigheaded one and don't take me very serious often. In my view calling for democratic choices can result in mediocre solutions. But hey, Its your guitar Tony. Build the thing and ake it yours. And when ready without a strip, I promise not to slash it because of the missing strip. Maybe just a little tease.

Well I started bracing the back last night so the decision has been finalized. No strip. Thanks for your opinions everyone. It certainly helped me to see that not stripping was the right way to go with such nice wood. ;-)

Tony, you'll enjoy working with the walnut. I am just finishing a walnut guitar now. I had used walnut in the past for furniture, but this is my first time using it for a guitar. I actually have never heard or played a walnut guitar, so I am curious how it will sound when done. Have fun!
