I'll have to post some pics of the Kingwood - a dalbergia closely related to Braz, and rarish because the trees don't normally grow much in diameter.

If we have a "pairs" thread Col and I will have to post our OOs.... even the headstock designs are similar!

And, along the way, I picked up a Meridian in coco and blue - the "Geo" that was shown at La Conner 2 years ago. I love my OOs but that larger coco/blue really rumbles!

Cheers all,

Phil
What are you like with Photoshop, Phil?! Maybe we can get both 00s into the same image . Anyway, looking forward to seeing more of your Kingwood beauty.

So not to derail this great thread but to fill in some details I've started a thread on the three Baranik guitars shown at La Conner this year.

Cheers all,

Phil

Smile Baranik Meridian

Thanks Phil. I would love to see some photos of your "Geo" Meridian. Please feel free to post them to this thread or your new Baranik La Conner thread.

BTW, your Kingwood 00 looks amazing, especially that blue headstock!

I'll set up a thread for the "Geo"... coco/blue (sound familiar??) (but it's not "sick" coco...!!!)

Took me a while to read this fascinating thread with rather stunning cocobolo. But it reminded me of something in a small but select stash of sets... I had two of these bought initially as drop tops as there were no sides, and one has indeed been used as such (see pic below), but this thread has made me re-think. Was concerned it might be a bit unstable, but have now had this for 12 years and still flat and no cracks or concerns... so it might become a flattop, but with plain quartered sides which is all I have

(The hole is as when this pic was taken, my fried who I built this for changed his mind and wanted teh active pU set, had to wait to order the correct push/pull pot...)

Smile Sick Cocobolo

Thanks for posting Frank. Indeed, that is a very nice set of Cocobolo you have, and it has some similarities to my Baranik Meridian. That Cocobolo topped bass guitar is stunning!!!
