Here we go again! Among other amazing things, there is 70-something sheets of uniform quilted maple, so no rush to get the best pieces!

My choice is already claimed, and I'm excited to be done with that part of the process. I have no gray hair yet, but I've wondered if this would give me some

You don't suppose that the Emerald folks have that in mind when making/posting these unveiling videos?

Those were some awesome veneers. The royal ebony was quite unique compared to what they had in the past.

I watched the video and started having visions of a woody X7 with an espresso-colored quilted maple top and amber b/s.

If one can think it Alistair can build it! I have got to stay away from this place!!
