I have hoarded Brazilian for years. I am letting go of some acoustic gutiar sets. For as little as $1000 each. The last time I sold this stock I got $2000 per set. But then the crash happened. Wood is located in Windsor Ontario. All was harvested long before cities. The bulk being stored since the early 70’s.

Also have some top grade appalachian spruce tops. This is private stock stuff. All the top grades from years of hoarding.

Before the nonsensical start ranting about cities etc – this is all pre cities wood. It was cut long ago, not yesterday. Long before the ordeal and baby seal people started up with it.

When I say a set I refer to the back and sides.

no, its the SIDES and BACK peices required to make an acoustic guitar. Like this http://www.lashingguitars.com/brazrose/000/001.html

Guitar builders know all about the material and what a set is. If you not not seek it, than you’re wasting both our time.

i never waste time mine or yours i am curious as i would have my Luthier build this as i have made several guitars and never herd of the term set as you have used it i see a book matched back and a set of sides to make 1 guitar i assume the guitar must be worth 10 k when done i am the owner of the guitar gods . com and i have several guitar makers that will be interested in this wood i must admit i think the price is high but i have not researched it that much as i have used wood that is available here in my wood store i am always looking for better wood if this is great wood ill likely buy a set to make a guitar my luthier is very good and i trust him with a grand worth of wood you mentioned wood for the tops do you have photos of that too

another thing you mentioned is long before cities what do you mean by this statement i feel we have a communication gap and don’t want that to stop us from doing business

what are baby seal people this is all Greek to me

I have five sets of walnut shoots with poplar cross pieces. Five thousand bucks buys a quarter set and I’ll throw in a pair of oak flip ties. If you want those double cross-hatched it’ll cost you extra, and I don’t have the have toggle fluid, so don’t even ask.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you’re an idiot. Don’t wast my time. I only sell to people who know the lingo…

LOL

BUT… he is not out of line on his price…

for example: http://maxkrimmel.com/Guitars/Wood%20for%20sale/Brazilian%20thumbs.htm

... or his time wasting statement. One of those “if you have to ask, you probably don’t need to know” as in you won;t be buying this is you on’t know what a set is. I’ll just bet.

David is correct and I fully understood your post, lashing, but front loading it with an attitude is not the best approach when trying to sell stuff.

My question is why did you come to this forum in the first place if you didn’t want to be bothered with questions from non-luthiers. I sometimes get irritated with folks who’ve never heard of Google but… would you like some assistance with forums dedicated to the fine art of luthiery?

I didnt come forward with attitude. David is right. All I meant was – this is expensive stuff. If its not what you know and seek then you are not going to buy it.

Plus Pierce, this isnt a discussion thread. Its a sell/swap thread. See that heading up there? The category it is in? Why did you come here? Again – this isnt about attitude or egos. If you are not a craftsman seeking top grade brazilian rosewood, then why on earth are you here commenting?

Please. If you wish to discuss other things start your own thread. This one is for luthiers who want/need what I have. Its very difficult to find and I would like those who are looking be able to find it without scrolling thru these trivial rants.

Holy crapoley, Lashing! Sorry you have to deal with these morons! Guys like you and me shouldn’t have to be exposed to the riff-raff here. They should have seperate forums for us really smart people with nice wines (at least $6 a bottle) and a dress code that requires top hats and monocles. I mean, the nerve of some people to impose on superior intellects like US to “scroll thru trivial rants” – why, it’s enough to make a decent man sell his chalet and move to the Hamptons! I, for one, will be reminding everyone who reads any of my future posts to open their beady little eyes and read the forum headings before commenting- if indeed these trailer hicks can actually read!

Are you free tomorrow? I’m looking for a squash partner- meet me at the country club!

This IS the trade and swap part of the forum.

There is zero front-loaded attitude in the OP post. All I see is negative reaction to the price of “three strips of wood”.... then some piling on.

Yes, indeedy… that wood just might easily become a $20,000 guitar (in the right hands).

or maybe just a $7500 guitar
