    Dalbergia tucarensis - 3 pieces each 1x3x40-7/8"

    Combined with a pair of ebony stringers, this will be a neck.



    Sequoioideae - a nice one piece top

    Sooner or later I will buy a nice piece of Dalbergia melanoxylon for a fretboard -

    Perhaps I'll also buy a second smaller piece for a headstock overlay...

    You're welcome on the redwood :lol:

    Nice scores. I've got some of that Panama Rosewood at Rob's shop waiting to be a neck as well :yesway:

    I also want to get some African Blackwood for a fretboard at some point...

    I am firmly of the opinion you have far too much money for your own good.

    It is time to stop spending my friend, you need to handle your addiction :squint:

    You sound like the women in my life... :squint:

    I'm excited as this build will have a first for me - a custom inlay (perhaps more than one too)!
