The latest Emerald woody veneer unboxing...

That Harborica at the end is gorgeous. Never heard of that wood before - had to look it up.

Captain;

Thanks for the heads-up. Also, dang! Just about the time I settle on my favorite of the available veneers, more options appear. Based on this selection, I need 3 or 4 more guitars.

My pleasure - your Emerald is beautiful. I'd like this thread to provide some sort of central location to display Emerald's amazing wood veneers...
