Beautifully looking and I assume sounding Private Stock guitar, and great tone wood choices! Both my 4 & 5-string Spector Euro Bolt-On EX (Exotic Top) Basses have Zebrawood "tops" - it's not even fair to refer to them as "tops" to the Alder "backs" - the 4 is equal, and the 5 actually has more Zebrawood that Alder! - are the most acoustically loud and punchy of all my basses*, and I actually stripped a Strap-Lok screw head during installation. Even my Tech couldn't remove it, and had to cut the screw shaft flush with the body and slooowly drill a new hole right next door to the original so it would be covered by the felt & Strap-Lok mechanics. The Zebrawood 5-string is my "go-to" Bass and while I love my custom Fretless Euro Bolt-On 5 FM (Flamed Maple) and the high-end "sweetness" that the Maple adds to its "Tonal Cocktail", I still might have built a fretless with a Zebrawood top just to hear how amazingly punchy that fretless would kick through a mix! *Not counting, of course, my Taylor AB-2 acoustic bass guitar. Between its design by the late Steve Klein & Taylor luthiers who made the body wedge-shaped to "force" the lower-frequencies down to it's non-standard placed Soundhole and it's body & top made from an also very dense Brazilian Walnut, it's one of the few ABGs I've heard audible while playing unplugged with an Acoustic Guitar.
