I will be sure to post plenty of pics once the build starts (probably after the first batch the the fanned 7's is done).

Imagine this -




With the walnut top and a rosewood neck. Not sure what kind of fretboard as yet. And yes, a natural finish is the only option

Yes. Oregon Wild Wood has some really nice walnut. For example, this wild piece -

Did you guys read the description of Bostogne Walnut?

Quote:
Bastogne Walnut - Perhaps the rarest Walnut in the world. When English Walnut was brought to Northern California, It occasionally cross pollinated with the Claro walnut. About 1 in 100 successful cross pollinations yielded a rare variation, very different from either English or Claro Walnut. Originally called Paradox Walnut, Bastogne is now the more common name. Only about 50 of these trees exist.
Wow.

I'm not sure if it's good or not to be using something that rare, but god damn that's a fantastic top.

Since it's a species created by human intervention that can be recreated I don't see a problem with using the wood

PS - NOT HELPING GAS

and here's a better pic of the DCii-6 that shows the top contours (meant to post this earlier)

I think the only way to make a guitar out of such a nice piece of wood is a completely rectangular one.

I would gladly have a piece of that wood just hanging on a wall like it was a painting.

I agree, that thing is going to be hot. What are the full specs of that one?

Is it one of the 1" thick sets? If so that's even more awesome.

Second build...

Ordered everything I'll need a couple of days ago. The dude that's bringing the stuff to me should be here the 22nd, but I got no clue as to when I'll have them in my hands.... so yeah, the horrors of waiting.
