What do you all think of this for my top wood on the six I'm building?
Looks cool; Crotch Walnut?
Tee hee hee.. He said crotch..
Immaturity aside, the wood looks quite nice. I can't wait to see the finished product
Very nice. I love Walnut of any type.
Actually, it's myrtle burl! I have enough for two tops, plus headstock overlay...what color hardware?
BTW, my neck is laid up- M-PH-M-Wenge-M-PH-M...I'd hate to get hit with it, solid as it is. No pics of it yet, but I'll post em when I got em.
Next question- single-cut, or double?
6 string Single Cut mmmmmm..... Double Cut is great too though. What do your single and double shapes look like?
Nice bit of wood. I look forward to seeing a pic of it finished in daylight.
I like the choice of neck timbers too. Why that particular combo?
Oh, make it a double and the hardware black.
looks really good, it has some very nice figuring on it. I think that would look hot with some black hardware. it would be sweet if you could get some matching knobs and/or pickup covers out of that wood also.
I should have plenty from the cutoffs to effect a set of knobs, and also to do the pickup covers. If not enough for the covers, I'll have plenty of other wood...wenge, purpleheart...maybe I should do ebony covers? Ah, the choices...
I love it, man. That's gonna look awesome!
That was sanded to 320-grit, then one coat of Danish oil. Might do a slight amber stain with a clearcoat over it, but not sure...I really like the color and depth it has just with the one coat of oil. I have enough to do a couple tops, so I have room to experiment. I can resaw a thin slice to try different stains. Might even try some blue/gold, like buckeye. We'll see...any input here?
