Of course I would!

I can get around on a 1 3/4 for most of what I play - but there are things that don't work well.

Haha! Steve is having a little too much fun with you guys. This would be an extremely hard guess for most luthiers even if it was in color. You may have heard of this wood, but doubtful many of you have seen more than a handful of pieces in real life. I’ll let that hang out there for a while.

No you don't Bob, but even if you had it would not be a correct guess.

No, not Mun Ebony either. But thanks everyone for playing along.
Maybe Ryan will repost this pic in color?
