    Looks like some kind of burl. Hard to tell what kind without a closer look.

    Cool COol....was just wondering cause i`m in the process of planning out my first build....what do you guys think of an oak body with a neck thru design by carvin(maple neck) and a curly maple or curly koa top?
     
  9. It'll be heavy...no, really heavy.

    And when you are in the 2nd week of pore filling that oak, you'll be wishing you hadn't! ;)
