    I'm looking for some top-of-the-line AAAAA burl walnut to use as body wings on a bass project. I'm wondering if there are any suppliers who specialist in burls or in walnut (burl) specifically. Most of what I've seen has been pale, lackluster, and overall unimpressive...and I'm looking for a mind-blowing piece with deep chocolate browns and amazing, 3D burl figuring. Any recommendations or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    There's also California walnut designs (search the web for them) and Larry at Gallery Hardwoods (galleryhardwoods.com) often has interesting stuff.
