Nearly all of the three- and four-string guitars I've created have been fashioned from oak and poplar sticks picked up at Lowes and The Home Depot. But, today I stumbled onto something special.
I decided to call a local cabinet maker to see if he might have a little waste wood laying around that I might be able to score from him. Lo and behold, I hit the jackpot! Not only does he have scrap material, but it is in the form of exotic woods, and the traditional domestic stuff . . . and, the great news is, he is going to cut and plane it to my specs and quantity requested . . . cheaper than I buy the pre-cut lumber from the other guys.
Whoa, I'm so stoked! Can't wait to work with the new stuff, and to see the results. Yes, I will be posting pics.
