Built this baby 2 years ago. Love the grain. Musikraft Neck. Sick guitar.
Very nice Its always amazes me to see the high quality of work thats out here
I am a recovering grain addict. So much so that plaintops are looking good to me now. I do still fancy the tight flame on this Wildwood Select LP Standard.
This is the back of my Eccleshall Scimitar. Ash felled in Cornwall about 1945, made into a guitar body in 1987, guitar completed in 2008. The neck is more recently felled ash from near Two Bridges on Dartmoor. The two grains almost seem to run into each other!
Wow, I'd love an ASAT like that. Lightweight too!
That Strat body has very unusual grain! Like it.
Hate to be left out so here goes nothing:
Bought cheap. Thought it was a photo flame (so dusty I couldn't tell), turned out to be a decent laminate. Changed the bridge (too narrow) installed a treble bleed (needs a better one), great player.
I hope you named that one Georgia Okeefe
Most acoustic guitars are erotic. Just not overtly porographic.
when you said there was a face I thought you meant the big squinty stalin at the bottom
My top two guitars with the most "unusual" wood grains in the body wood are the two in my avatar pic: my Logan Custom "Firecasters" (teles made from lumber salvaged from our house fire). Here's a closer look at that avatar pic...
I'm a lousy photographer, so the one on the left is kind of in the shadows while the one on the right is "washed out" a bit by too much sunlight. So let me also add pics of each one individually.
The first one, Firecaster I, was acquired Christmas of 2012. The top veneer (chambered body) is salvaged planks of old growth, construction grade Longleaf Pine. The body is stained walnut (with a matching headstock) and isn't relic'ed. It just shows the knots, blemishes and scars from being used in constructing shiplap siding in a house and having come through the fire. The very face of the guitar tells its story, which is exactly what I wanted.
Last year, I custom ordered from Bob Logan the second one, Firecaster II. It is also made from that salvaged Longleaf pine, and continues telling that story, this time in a natural nitro finish. Again, the top showcases the knots, blemishes, scars even nail holes of that LLP, with beautiful,striking wood grains. Bob Logan outdid himself on the bookmatching.
I have two other guitars (also made by Bob Logan) that have striking if not unusual wood grains, but as I said before, these Firecasters are my top two.

I made this for my late brother. Zebra wood over swamp ash.
Nicest silking I've seen on a spruce top.

A beauty of a copy LP, great job
My 2nd ever build. As this was an accident with respect to the finish. I originally used clear coat only as a finish, it looked too plain, so i sanded it down and used an all in one minwax. It came out pretty nice overall. I dremeled out some of the neck cavity and put in an 1980's Japan Strat neck pickup. Sounds amazing. Looks nice too.
