Are those slabs or half logs?

SR

just slabs.  1.5" thick.  for the sissoo... def going to have to make a thin body out of that... the eucalyptus... i dunno... perhaps resaw for a top?  would love to use for a neck but will have to leave it sit for a long time to see if it's done drying.

Inch and a half is perfect for tops with a deep carve.....

SR

right on.  the euc is actually a hair thicker than 1.5" so should be able to get two .75" pieces for a nice deep top like you said.  the sisoo is right at 1.5" and a bit thin for a body, i know... but would work for an sg or sabre or other really thin body.  doesn't look like much unfinished, but is super pretty once it is finished up.  the light wood areas kind of look like white mahogany.  super short grain everywhere.
