Yes indeed, brother. Curly Koa all around. It pulls out the golds in that walnut, and gives some domestic "shazaam" as accent.

Love that Claro Steve!

TomB'sox 01-08-2020 10:38 AM

OK, even that I know what it is now, I still feel like I have never seen anything like that before!

Nemoman 01-08-2020 10:46 AM

That's some crazy walnut guys--can't wait to see this one!

Since I flunked out on the Claro, what woods are on the headstocks? I have a feeling if we know that, we might just know what the back and sides are made from?

Nemoman 01-09-2020 01:46 PM

I know one...
 
Well I know the upper one is Claro! :D

Kevin is correct, top headstock is Claro burl. Bottom is Dalbergia Nacogdochia, or the rosewood formerly known as Brazilian.
And yes, they correspond to their respective body woods.

What's the neck wood on the top one, Steve? Maybe it's just the light, but it doesn't look like mahogany. Can't wait for the next reveal!

Daveac 01-10-2020 08:27 AM

Soooo, since we know the crazy Walnut is going to be a 00, when do we get a hint what the Brazilian Rosewood will be???

That would be cool. I hope you're right, Tom.

Right you are, it's walnut. Curly Black walnut, with a curly mahog center lam.
That should tie in nicely with the curly Koa bindings.
