Bit of a strange one this but back in 1993 when I was at uni I did quite a bit of instrument building as part of my degree. I purchased this piece of Brazillian Rosewood at the time that had apparently been in the storeroom since the early 1980s (for approx £30!). I used part of it on a 5-string multiscale bass which I think is in storage in the attic but anyway... The question is, what do I do with it? The dimensions are a bit difficult for me to actually work with (I don't have a thicknesser or similar to get it to workable dimensions for fingerboard blanks any more...) and I'm not sure there's anyone near me who could do this. Regardless, I'm not sure my building skills would do it justice anyway. From the bass I built this piece has a LOT of interesting colours in it when it's sanded. I'll have to dig it out and remind myself. Given it's CITES status - I'm guessing I can't just sell this? I don't have any documentation to prove where it came from - as I say it's definitely pre-CITES but... Dimension-wise it's approx 925mm x 75-115mm and between 11 and 16mm thick (ie. 37" x 3-4.5" x 1/2") so pretty substantial.
