    Cool-------------I just went and posted 35,000 yr old wood on there AND a picture of my bass made from it. Gorgeous wood. Oldest and rarest workable wood in the world.

    Any of the threads about ACG basses are 100% wood porn. That guy must've made a sacred deal with the tree gods, because he gets wood for his instruments that is unbelievable looking.

    Also, check out the Fodera on the right:

    I have a few with nice wood. My favorite is my Sadowsky 25th Anniversary Modern 5-24 with flamed koa top. Then the koa Fodera and the two F Basses, spalted maple and buckeye burl. Oh yeah, and the Drozd.
