avdekan Posted April 29, 2009 Report Share Posted April 29, 2009 It has been a while since I posted here (and since my last build), but now I'm building again . I am currently in the process of building a bass for a good friend of mine. we decided on a black limba body with a top that I'm unable to recognize (so I can't tell him what his bass is made of ). I got the piece of wood from which I made the top from the scrap wood area at a local hardwood warehouse (and there is enough wood for a second top)- it cost me close to nothing. the problem is that no one at the warehouse could tell me what it was. one guy said he thought it was Emboya, but he wasn't sure... Anyway, here it is: The lighting makes it a bit yello in the picture. in reality the color is greenish-brown (a bit darker then Lignum Vitae). It's a medium-weight wood and it produces a sort of a fruity smell when sanded. Any input would be great. thanks, Binya Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
