    Where do you (and other people) find stuff like that? I scoured everywhere I could think for a decent limba body and found nothing. Not even good mahogany or Swamp ash.

    I got that set of boards from larose guitars on instagram. he has excellent wood choices with great figuring. Doesn't hurt that he has relatively reasonable prices (especially compared to secretstashhardwoods). finding really figured limba is pretty hard honestly. I've had a lot better luck finding figured sapele or mahogany so far.

    Built a new cab for my Mesa, oversized 2x12 based on the port city wave design but in pine instead of plywood. Little rough around the edges but it'll do the trick. IMG_20180527_163427.jpg IMG_20180527_163414.jpg IMG_20180522_025516.jpg

    Try Cook Woods or Gilmer.

    EDIT: I found that guy on Twitter that was mentioned above....holy sh*t I wish youdidn't give us his name. Now I have more wood pr0n to keep from spending my money!

    No.I find taper laminates to difficult for me to dial with them.It looks like taper because of the torzal neck twist

    Thanks for the kind words. Also just finished my first build, finally. Lots of mistakes were made (so don't zoom in) but surprisingly I ended up with a reasonably playable instrument. Hopefully I can learn from the errors since I'm already collecting wood for the next build :lol:

    This is super cool. How do you place the truss rod(s) work on a neck like that?

    Soya, that's a cracking effort with the Standberg copy. Well done.

    I guess the strings are still pulling the same direction.
