    So, my wallet would like to "thank" KnightBolaire for turning me on to Larose Guitars (*whispers* I hate you). I actually spoke to Todd last week about some oversized black limba bodies. *Such* a nice guy. His prices are insane. Anyway, long story short, this blank is on its way to me this week to (some day) be turned into something similar to the second pic (credit: Marison Huertas). It will be a V with natural limba back and multi-layer-bound, figured top and black limba neck. I think it will probably be the last V I build unless I get to the point I can actually start selling guitars. It will be my fourth. I have no room for them. :D

    oh, yeah definitely don't look at kimballhardwood's stuff on Instagram/ebay then. He's got ridiculous stuff like LaRose. :D

    Oh dang. Please don’t use that for a V. Use way more of that real estate!

    I'm not using it for a V, that's the template that LaRose drew on it. It's big enough for an explorer though :D

    Exactly my thought. Stoked for it (eventually)!

    I can help. I’ll open a GoFundMe page where people can donate a fraction of what they’d spend on veneers, top-plates and body woods, pool our resources, and I’ll get those evil temptations off the market. :evil:

    Finished a cover plate for the bass project and started applying finish. Still a bit more work to do. Bottom pic is with just a few coats of shellac as sealer.

    New build getting roughed in. Black walnut body, bubinga neck, macassar ferret. Been wanting to work on it more but been so hot here lately its pretty unbearable in my garage.
