    Hi all,

    My fifth build of 2011 is going to be a all-rosewood thinline. The usual rosewood Tele appointments, but with an f-hole and a hybrid guard. Planning on a natural matte finish with Penofin (rosewood oil) for both the body and the neck.

    Here's the body wood... The piece on the left will yield a book-matched top, and the piece in the center will be used for a two-piece body. Each board is roughly 2x7x40".

    In the meantime, let's see your rosewood builds!!

    Ciao,
    Rick

    Cool, what kind of rosewood is it?

    Here is a chunk of cocobolo I've got stashed for a lap steel project
