I’ve got one 8/4 12” wide 10’ long piece of Brazilian. Also two 4/4 28” by 10’ panels.. my dad got them in the 70’s from the boat shop he worked in.. 30 someodd years later they’re still stack up in our material closet.. anyone know what these would be worth?!

Thanks, Devin

If it is quarter sawn and turned into guitar back and side sets, you’ll never have to work again!
Most guitars are under 16in book matched… that leaves plenty to cut fingerboards and headstock veneers.. You have a gold mine. Legal documentation is a must.

When I bought my guitar 6 years ago it was brazilian rosewood back and sides with proper documentation. I know that luthiers of many types will be kicking your door in to get that. I wouldn’t even know where to go about getting documentation however. You really have something great. Should be worth a ton of money, my guitar was more than a few thousand

i feel like the hardest part of this would be finding someone local with the need to pay you what its worth. I know that this stuff is really rare esp if its legal, but I am going to guess its going to be a limited market unless someone wants to pay to ship it, but thatd be a small fortune in and of itself.
