  1. I've been collecting maple for our builds for the last 10 years. I have both billets and individual tops. We don't use much maple anymore and I have enough to last until I'm about 150 years old, so I promised my wife I'd try to get a bunch of it out of the house. If all goes well, I'll keep adding more as pieces sell. All prices include PayPal fees and US shipping. PIECE #1, TOP (20.125" x 15.25" x .375") $65 PIECE #1, BILLET (21" x 15" x 1.125") $60 FRONT: BACK: PIECE #3, BILLET 21" x 14.75"x 1.125" $60 FRONT: BACK:
  2. I have a bunch of chrome Strat pickup rings and no plans to use them any more. they are exactly the same as the rings that Allparts sells for $12.50 each under part # PC-0761-010. My price is $10 each or $20 for 3 including shipping. PayPal is welcome with no fees. I'm in the midst of doing an inventory now but I have at least 20 rings. Here's a look at one ring plus a shot of body with the rings installed.
  3. No finish required. You can essentially treat them as a rosewood substitute. That's exactly what Gibson is doing with it.
  4. I have three Roasted/Baked/Vulcanized Maple BASS fingerboards. The dimensions are 28" x 3 1/4" x .35" (So you can also use them for guitars plus I also have some guitar sized boards) For those who are unfamiliar with the process, the maple is heated to over 250 degrees in a kiln in which the oxygen has been removed. (So it should probably be referred to as "heat-treated" maple but it would= be a lot less sexy. The removes the moisture making the wood more stable and rigid. heat treated maple is now being used by a number of leading boutique builders for both necks and fingerboards and Gibson is now offering it as a rosewood alternative on a number of models. I would prefer to sell these as a single batch. The price is $20 each plus shipping. Please e-mail me at jim@jimsoloway.com or call me at 503-977-2727.
  5. 108 is also sold pending payment
  6. This is going to be an ongoing sale for a while. I've decided that we're going to discontinue our original body shape and focus on the much the larger single cut and its growing variants. So I'm going to start selling off any wood that's not wide enough for the larger body. Prices include shipping in the US. I accept PayPal and all the major credit cards without fees. For more info, please e-mail me at jim@jimsoloway.com or call me at 503-977-2727. I'll keep adding more as it sells and I get it photographed and measured. Here's batch #1. They're all a minimum of 1/4" thick and some runs as thick as 1/2" (if the thickness above 1/4" is important to you, just let me know and I'll get you the additional info). It's surfaced on one side and photographed dry with a flash. DCM-101 (21 X 14) $60 ON HOLD PENDING PAYMENT DCM-102 (22 1/2 X 14) $55 DCM-103 (22 5/8 X 12 3/4) $60 DCM-105 (22 5/8 X 14 3/4) $50 DCM-106 (20 3/4x 14) $60 ON HOLD PENDING PAYMENT DCM-107 (24 X 14 1/8) $50 DCM-108 (23 X 14) $60 DCM-112 (21 3/4 X 14) $60 ON HOLD PENDING PAYMENT
