I just finished a lap steel using leopardwood - I bought it solely because of appearance. I've only played it once (just finished yesterday - pictures will be posted soon), but no problems with tone. Its a beautiful wood - works and finishes wonderfully. Based on its characteristics & feel, I'd guess it would be similar to walnut for tone.

Yeah, that's some really high-octane wood, love to get ahold of some myself one day...post pics of the leopardwood guitars! :D

I've got enough for two tops. I just had it resawed yesterday. I now have 2 boards 7/16 x 9 x 3 feet. I'll be cutting them in half to make two tops. If you have some other figured wood, maybe we could work out a trade.

I'll post some pictures later tonight.
