Thank you Palladio. Slab cut means that the log has been sliced the usual flat way. Center Slab board is a board that is closer to the center of the log so the arcs or the end grain are rounder and the edges of the board are closer to rift. Those boards allow more control of the high frequencies depending which side is selected to be facing up (top). The down side is that they tend to move more in the drying process so I have to start with a 2" initial thickness and lose some material when final truing then. Those bodies usually sound a little brighter and open and the wavy pattern on the sides (by the waist area) is more dramatic and beautiful. I use this cut for all my LP builds as well. The weight will be ~7 lbs.
