So here I am, looking for a walnut club thread to take care of my walnut jones, and I found it. And I see I actually created it, almost 7 years ago. And I looked for it because I'm thinking of building basically the exact same guitar I was stupid enough to sell, that I mentioned on page 1. Gawd, I'm an idiot sometimes. :wall:
American guitars
British Amps (mostly)
What more do you need?

Hi Mike,

Thanks. I do love that guitar. I had Jeff select the top and he picked a nice piece for sure.

Sure.
FW Figured Claro Walnut Top $280
50 Jeff to pick top and layout $200

I sent in some reference photos of pieces of Claro that I liked from other builds. Jeff did the rest, picking the wood and its bookmatching.

Wow!
That is an insanely low price! Especially considering that wood is the super special stuff he keeps in his office.
I don't remember what video it is, but ya he's got a fancy little vault for the "Jeff picked" woods.
