    Glad to see you made it through the hurricane. We're still waiting for an update for my parents place in Sarasota.

    It's definitely the toughest wood I've found! Rock hard, resistant to cutting, splinters like a bastard. On the plus side... it looks amazing and after 2 days of carving your neck, my arms looked pretty great too haha

    Seriously though, I'm probably going to take it out of the selector on my site after this one.

    Just picked up some nice mahogany and the coolest ash I've ever seen.

    Congrats man, I really miss my Katalox fretboard but I do remember hearing it was a PITA to work with.

    I'm going to build a prototype with an Ovangkol neck. I think this one will be very tough to work with, too.

    EDIT: Nice ash btw!

    I'm alive! Though I don't post here nearly as often as I should.

    On the the bench today: ash body, pau ferro neck and fretboard. This one is getting a new prototype wind from Adam over at Elysian, I'm pretty pumped.

    Tomorrow I'm going to get the front and rear contours carved, we'll see what else happens.

    Feels good! The body is down to sanding now, looking forward to getting frets installed and neck carved.
