$1000 for that? You gotta be shitting me? It'd want to come with a Klon or two for that sort of money. He's just biscuit joined the corners like I do, hell it could just be a glued butt joint. For that sort of money I'd expect to see dovetailing or something.

If it really was cocobolo, it could be a big factor in the price...and condition. It isn't cheap, and its fragrant oils can make it hell to work with.

Not excusing the final, shoddy product, mind you. Just saying that a legit cocobolo ANYTHING will be pricey due to raw costs, labor and even equipment that you should use while working it.

If it was a table maybe, there's not much wood in that thing.
I do better work when I'm just slapping together something to use myself. I'd be emrassased to let that out of the workshop if I was selling it. I certainly wouldn't be asking for $1000, I'd be asking for them to accept my apology.

Wait so it was salvage custom who did it was it?

never really liked them just as a result of aversion to the P&W associated guys but that just makes me smirk. Everyone talking them up all the time but we'll see what happens now.

That's really scummy. There is a difference between natural, earned confidence and saying 'FU' to everyone else. Never liked that company. I'm starting to see a correlation between P&W and dbags. P&W... Pricks & Wankers. Sorry, had to be done.

I'm still on the look out for the right Rocker 30 and they tend to sell fast when they come up. You shouldn't have too much of a problem.
