PS: I was wondering if anyone had tried Wookie bones. The shipping costs would probably be a killer, though.
Well, Peter Mayhew, who portrayed Chewbacca in the series, just died on April 30th. Wasn't expecting that turn of events in this thread.

Yes, but you have to expect delivery at light speed to be more expensive than FedEx!

Ah Wade, I think I remember you posting that moose antlers make the best bridge pins and have a huge impact on tone...LOL (just kidding)

Exactly! I wanted to try it and did, but it isnít a financially viable option unless civilization ends and I have to treat my own bone so i can play music in the taverns and earn a few pennies.....

Perhaps there'll be a new Ice Age, the wooly mammoths will come back, and you'll find that wooly mammoth ankle bone makes the best nuts and saddles!

At that point, of course, we'll all be dressing like the folks in "Xena, The Warrior Princess," and we'll be making our guitar strings from sabertooth cat gut...
