“Real” Redwood burl, premium grade, not just stump wood junk. The bookmatches are simulated but it’s basically what you can expect . I may cut and re-saw this one myself or sell it whole as is. This piece is large enough for 3 solid body guitars and 3+ bookmatched sets or for tons of bookmatched sets. This wood is old growth but is better suited for bookmatched sets.

Great wood, and clever image editing to create the simulated book match. That’s a clever idea for previewing it.

That would is gorgeous. I’m not good enough to do anything with that wood. I would have to hoard it a way for a few years in the hopes that I would one day be worthy to do something with it.

Awesome wood, and by the outlines on it, going to be put to a good use too.

Eric, that would be better as a few boxes!! Beautiful wood as usual from you. That should generate some interest. I will have too see what lesser quality you have in the near future. I just now am cutting the Maple burl I got from you.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Those are going to make some awsome guitars. Please be sure to post pictures of the finished guitars. I don’t think I have seen figure like that except when book matched. That stuff looks bookmatched and you haven’t even cut it yet. Amazing.
