    I'm not an expert on the subject, but i believe most of the redwood available to mortals is very young and designated timber from birth.

    looking it up on wikipedia, redwood is a name attached to a whole bunch of trees of different families, and across two species, many of them far from extinct. it depends on what tree it´s really from.

    How do you mean? Is it anything like chicken nuggets are "mechanically recovered?" :lol:

    Haha, no, in this case it was actually recovered from a valley flooded to make a hydroelectric dam in Canada. It's pretty cool actually, they use a remote controlled submarine with a chainsaw to fell the trees:

    There's plenty of legally obtainable redwood.

    Exactly how I felt, but you're probably better served throwing down a deposit and working an idea out with Dylan. I don't know about you, but he's way better at the creative aspects than I am, and now that we've pieced together an idea (that will likely be its own thread here in a couple months) I can say that I'm glad I didn't wait any longer than I did!

    That's badass man, I have a hard-on for nature lately and that's some really well thought out recycling right there.

    I don't give a fuck if it's legal :lol: I just wanted to know how it was obtained and/or if it was ethical, in a loose sense of the word.

    Went over to visit the Dyl-meister this afternoon, mainly to check the neck profile before the neck is glued in. Suffice to say it feels pretty fucking amazing. Knowing my preference, Dylan took his standard profile and thinned it out just a tad, leaving it at around 18.5mm at the nut. It doesn't feel as insubstantial as that measurement may make it sound though, it's still got lovely smooth shoulders with just the right amount of flatness to the back.

    (Note that the Hannes bridge in some of those photos isn't the one that will be on the guitar - mine will be chrome)

    Also, check out the fretboard on this guitar Dylan's building for himself:

    Quilted maple is generally regarded to flimsy to use as a fretboard, but since it's a personal guitar Dylan doesn't mind the risk.
