That is just a bark inclusion. The top one turn out purple because of the red hue in the natural burl. He sprayed grey and that is how it turned out.

I end up at Alembic Guitars every once in a while, and am always blown away by the wood there (and the guitars, too, but they start with spectacular stuff). Last month Mica was showing off a pair of cocobolo slabs that I’d have been happy to have sanded down, finished, and put in a frame on my wall:

These pieces are similar. Thanks, for sharing them!

Wow…I am continuously amazed at the beauty in the woods we get lucky enough to work with….Those guitars are beauties….I wish I could play (being a lover of music – but not a player) but either way…I can enjoy the beauty of excellent work and beautiful woods….very nice indeed.

Very nice guitars, I would love to have either one. Is that a six string bass I’m seeing or are those top two holes part of the design? I almost signed up for a solid body guitar making class this year, didn’t happen. If I get the chance again to do it I’ll be calling on you for some wood.

it is going to be a 4 string bass. I figured “keep it simple”. I would be glad to supply you with a fine peice of wood for your guitar.
