I often have people visit who have unusual pieces of wood that they think I might want. They are usually right! I wasn’t sure about this big lump of dirty timber until I took the plunge and had it sawn up, but it’s worked out well, I’m fairly sure it’s Movingue, a sort of false Satinwood, and rather pleasant to work with. We’ve made this guitar for the customer who brought the wood, which is right and proper.
So, if anyone out there has some odd-looking planks lying around, drop me a line!
