My 1988 Martin D16A (Ash back and sides)
Cherry often has some unusual grain patterns albeit subtle
This is a kit I ordered from China. The quilt is just a veneer but I like it.
This was at the stage where I was testing different wiring configurations "outboard."
I don't know why but every guitar/kit I have built have all been red.
This one is cherry and has some interesting grain but I've never bee able to get a picture that really shows it.
The neck is from Warmoth and has some nice birdseye too.
How about these?
Like it. More guitars should have clear guards.
What wood is the strat? Stunning.
That dark one is spcetacular! What a piece of wood you found. And nice work too.
it’s black walnut cut from the crotch of a tree.
Here's my baby. Baseball bat ash, 2 piece body. Oak grainfiller, then green stain and lacquer to finish
Cocobolo back. Bird's eye Maple front.
Unfortunately I don't have any burr/burl guitars, Have a few that aren't really very grand..
1960 Hofner President with a bit of fiddleback maple.
This Alliance has a fiddlefront maple!
I can't remember what this Tanglewood is made of, There's four different kinds though including the plain Nato neck and sycamore binding!
Also have no idea what the heck this stuff is!
My Martin D-16 Koa. lovin' it!
I've had this wood for around 20 years. Every once in a while I pick away at it.
The section I decided would be a Tele has some nice patterning you don't often see in mahogany.
I decided to make it the back so as not to cover it up. I think I'd like a Rosewood, Koa or Walnut veneer for the front as it's very plain now.
Will either do a Bigsby or a top load bridge.
Milling up some cocobolo fretboards, and a Douglas Fir archtop back.

I like veneer because it makes it a lot easier to build with unusual wood.
The wood on this one is etimoe:
This one's quilted sapele:
The next one's Karelian burl, which I believe only comes from trees in Finland. You rarely see it on guitars.
This is a kind of sycamore, I believe. I looks a little like snakeskin.
