    Don't worry, you're not gonna break a solid piece of wenge. It's an incredibly hard wood and not brittle like ebony. Lots of luthiers hate working with it because it destroys tools :lol:

    So. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while. I hit up Kevin at Iconic guitars and told him to spray nitro on this thing and go heavy on the relic. I think it came out great! 86A857BC-C555-4AC3-B7F6-A330B63E9E32.jpeg 7C7196FA-4B27-4545-817E-032B53F3624D.jpeg 6A1AF444-9C4D-45FE-BC36-D5AD5951A9D3.jpeg 0353D3C5-5A59-4802-BE49-C9307214FC77.jpeg

    That is both the first Larada and the first relic'd guitar I've looked at and thought, "Yeah, I'd play that." Well done Tosin.
