  1. I picked up a trans-black H150 several years ago. Not my favorite color choice, but it played great and was a good deal. It has a rosewood fingerboard, which I thought didn't go well with the trans black -- it should have been ebony. So, I decided to add more rosewood to make it a color theme, so to speak, and came up with this. Later I added pickups with black covers, so now there is no chrome on it either.
