    well, i've posted the claro walnut that i am planning on using for the top and bck of my bass. now I am thinking that maybe i will just use it for the top and do a mahogany body ( there is a tres sweet Fodera on his site with claro top and mahog body.) on the other hand, the flamed maple core that i have has great figure that would be a shame to hide- could use that as the body and then i could appreciate the flame on the back.

    My first plan was to walnut front and back and just admire the flame visible on the sides.

    THe upshot of just putting on a claro top I think is that I would have enough to do two more basses with the material that i would have left over.
