    so having finished up my last project I went searching for wood and found this. 8/4 x 13.5+ x 11'. $110. Seems pretty fair but what do I know. Anywho... dreaming of all the builds I'm going to do! DSCF2920.JPG DSCF2916.JPG DSCF2913.JPG

    That should last for a while! What type of wood is it?

    afa lasting... it's probably a lifetime supply. I really didn't need this much but most of the places where you get decent deals, can get a 13.5" piece, and be able to pick through a few, you have to buy the whole stick. They wouldn't even cut this in half, had to return with my own jigsaw so I could pick it up.

    No worries, good wood will likely only get better sitting in an az garage at 110 degrees and virtually no moisture.

    next on my list is an upscale dano-u2-meets-gretsch/lp with mahog back and set neck... maple top... birdseye fretboard w no radius... faux abalone binding/inlay.
