Curly Red Gum Wood?


Recommended Posts

So I just came back from Hawaii. While I was there though Id go look for some nice flame Koa but to no avail...

But I did score some australian curly Red gum wood. I paid 70$ for a plank 12in x 80in x 1.5in. But somehow I doubt its red gum wood.. Does any1 know for sure what this lumber is? and either way would it make a suitable top for an electric guitar? (I red some bad things about the red gum but I couldn't find any1 who used it on guitar making..)

here's a picture:
