New Wood Day. Just arrived from my favourite supplier:

mango - yum:


magnolia - new to me:


and a couple of quilted maple pieces - the second one is likely too short for a bass so if you want to make a guitar contact me:

Update with some new bits on the way. Somewhat unusual for me they're solid body pieces so no top required. Might make a nice semi-matched set, one fretted, one fretless:




Also on the way a couple of tops but nothing too exciting (walnut, quilted maple - you've seen those, right?).

Michael

Love it when you come home to a nice box from your favourite timber supplier:



Two body blanks (and yes, I know what it looks like but it won't be anything like that when it's a bass):



And two normal tops. Beautiful black walnut:


and the obligatory quilted maple (not sure about the symmetry here just yet, need to play around with it a little):


The body blanks are pretty solid and heavy (but they're 50 mm thick and pretty big).

Regards,
Michael
