    Such a great story! Thanks for posting it, pcake. I was a history teacher for many years and would love to have an instrument made from historic buildings.

    Many years ago, I was teaching social studies at a Catholic school and came across a big, thick poplar board in the basement of the church that was covered in dirt and crud. I asked if I could have it, and they were happy to get rid of it. I used it to make a short-scale fretless, which is the bass I am playing most often right now. I always refer to that wood as "sanctified poplar", since it spent many years on the basement of a church, and enjoy that there is a story behind the wood. The thought of playing an instrument made from wood that may be a 200 years old and was part of American history gets me all...... tingly.
