    Cool-------------I just went and posted 35,000 yr old wood on there AND a picture of my bass made from it. Gorgeous wood. Oldest and rarest workable wood in the world.

    Any of the threads about ACG basses are 100% wood porn. That guy must've made a sacred deal with the tree gods, because he gets wood for his instruments that is unbelievable looking.

    Also, check out the Fodera on the right:

    I got wood looking at that wood!

    I have a few with nice wood. My favorite is my Sadowsky 25th Anniversary Modern 5-24 with flamed koa top. Then the koa Fodera and the two F Basses, spalted maple and buckeye burl. Oh yeah, and the Drozd.

    The knobs are birdseye maple with bocote dots and the wood they are on is flamed walnut.

    Knobs made from the same piece of walnut.
