    Those pics make that Benavente guitar look kinda dull and washed out. I can assure you that was one of the most vibrant pieces of Redwood I've ever seen. It was more of a copperish color than you see in the pics.

    Holy crap... a redwood Sadowsky, eh? Has Roger built a redwood topped bass yet? I haven't seen one.

    Nice Jim! I especially like the butterfly at the top of the book match. You have to include that!

    Wow. That billet of wood is going to make a ridiculously beautiful bass. One of the only things I like better than quilted redwood is redwood burl. Any pics of those?

    Quilted Redwood just looks so much classier. Its deeper, darker and smoother looking that quilted maple.
