How much of it have you got, how much is flamed/quilted, and how good is it as a tonewood.

Think you could just about scrape a single Les Paul out of that

I just found it while Googling how to build a Router based Thicknesser (any ideas?).

I have never seen that sort of thing before (tree wise), especially being so massive.

The fact that it was Bubinga and awesome looking, made me feel I should share it with you lovely people.

And for all those "Wood" penis gags. Let us not forget, that the "wood", is being sliced up by a big old a bandsaw

That is what Gibson would have you believe...justifies the price on the Custom Shops then doesn't it!

"Yes Sir, the reason the guitar is $5000, is because we cut it from a solid lump of Bubinga, 4 feet square and 6 feet long."

That's cool.

At my lumber place, they've got a piece of figured bubinga that is like 4'x10'. It's massive, and looks really similar to that.

They also have a crosscut of bubinga that has all the rings on it. They marked out all of the years when things happened. It goes all the way to were like shakespear died, and when galileo died. It's pretty cool, and it's 3 grand.

It's a great tonewood, with lots of bass and it's heavier than hell.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.

It also sustains forever and ever and ever, due to it's insane density and weight.

Yeah I hear things actually begin to orbit Les Paul if he puts on a name tag.

My lumber yard has 12 ft long planks of highly figured Bubinga... too bad you have to buy the entire 12 feet and it's like 37 bucks a bd. ft.
build 1, finished 1/15/11

Every time I try to pick it up like falling sand,
As fast as I pick it up,
it runs away through my clutching hands.
There's nothing else I can really do...

i need to get me one of them bandsaws

The figuring in that wood is massive, look at the size of it compared to the guy
#37
you know what?
we should (as a team!) go and find where they got that!
then we go over there, get all out chainsaws, cut anuther one of them badass trees, and make the biggest guitar EVER.
cos im sure here at the GB&C we would have someone who could make each part... or somthing...

then in the end we would eat cake.


ohh and did i say we would have the biggest, most baddass guitar ever?

And if we made it an Acoustic, we could go into demolition or something with it.
"UG's Musical Demolition LLC"

Or, if we tuned the low E just right, we could take it somewhere and make all the women in the area Orgasm, a la "Mike Stern; Private Parts".

Or, as pointed out, we could go into the wooden, Bacon Sandwich business...we would need some good Maple for the bread though.

Unless you have some flippin big ass hands you would only be able to play open notes or get a big ass pipe and make it a slide.

Birdseye maple would be good for sesame seed buns methinks. Bloodwood could be the tomato, basswood/poplar/other green wood could be the lettuce.
And ladies and gentlemen, we just made a BLT! Out of wood!
