Goodness knows the last thing I need is another guitar, but having finally got power and light plumbed into my garage, and having made myself a nice new workbench, it's just asking to be used.

So I've got a bit of something on the go. Progress will be slow and I have another, more straightforward build coming along that I'll need to do, but I've cut a shape from one of the bits of spalted beech I have hanging around.

The plan is to make my own neck for this one, so there'll be some jig and tool making and a few practice runs going on.

Walnut would be nice.

I chose them out of the dozen+ sites I shop on because I knew they had good pix of a wide array of their products.

Where are you? Maybe I know a good one closer to you!

....and just looking at my resources, I note that a few sites are no longer active. Here's one that still is, and has great stuff:

The U.K.? You should be able to find good walnut there, as I recall.

Don't know how these guys compare to your sources, but:
