verhoevenc Posted February 13, 2006 Report Share Posted February 13, 2006 Ok, well I just got in almost ALL the wood for my next two projects. So I thought I'd share it cause I know how we all like to oogle and google over pictures, especially us wood junkies. That's (from back left to right, then top pieces) black limba, pacific alder, purpleheart, east indian rosewood, mahogany, and spalted maple. The only wood that I'm still waiting for is my 2x4 flamed maple neck blank... And to give ya'll an idea of where this gloriousness will go, one guitar is gunna be another MeuX E-Series style semi-hollow. That's the black limba back, 1/4" spalted maple/purpleheart laminated top (1/8" each with the spalt on top), and it'll have the flamed maple neck. The alder and the mahogany are going to this concept guitar I presented earlier: http://projectguitar.ibforums.com/index.ph...t=0#entry222057 but with the change that it'll now be a solid body guitar unlike that thread, which mentioned it would be semi-hollow. That last piece of east indian rosewood Gilmer gave me for free... and I'm guessing all I'm gunna use it for NOW is cut a strip off and make some sweet pickup rings from it. Chris PS: From that same purpleheart blank I also have another 8.75"x30"x1/4" that'll probably go to future laminate neck (with the extra 1"x2"x30" I'll get off that flamed maple blank coming, and some limba off the sides of that blank), and a fingerboard, and a purpleheart neck blank. (that purple heart started out as a HUGE board for a GREAT price, I got SO much out of it ) And I've got another 1"x"10"20" splated maple (the other bookmatched half of the one in the picture... but I don't forsee making a carved top outta that stuff... so I didn't need an 1" thick top... so I'm spliting the piece up to make two drop tops ) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
