Default More Woods

Since I'm on the new wood purchases subject here a several more.

First to round out my Mahogany like woods I've got this nice Sapele set in.
It would fall into the hard mahogany category closer to typical Cuban;



Here is a crazy Black Walnut that looks a lot like Claro. I'm planning on this being my next spec in the Greta model. I don't currently have a built Greta, they are a bit harder to hold onto;



And finally here is a nod to local woods. This is New Hampshire Red Spruce. Some would say ADI but we aren't in the Adirondacks. The colder weather here really shows in the dark grain lines;



I've got several of these Red Spruce sets as well as actual ADI. One of these days I'll make an all New Hampshire woods guitar.
