Insane Redwood Top


Recommended Posts

Wow. Gorgeous. Is that something you'd use as a veneer or would that be the guitar body?

It says it's 1/4" think so it would have to be for a top. I like it!

That's just NASTY!

... and NOT in a good way, IMO.

It's got a really strange 3D quality to it - it looks like an electron microscope picture of lung tissue or something equally unpleasant... or the pictures of the Red Weed from the illustrations for Jeff Waynes "War of the Worlds" album.

If it's redwood, it can be burled.

Not real crazy about that figure myself either.

It's an incredibly interesting top. My first reaction was also that it looked too eerie, but the more i looked at it, the more i wondered how it would look on a guitar.

In the end, i didn't bid. Redwood is hard enough to work with, i can't imagine how *that* piece will work. With my remedial skills, i'd end up making toothpicks out of it. (and i need another project like a hole in the head...)

The same seller sold this top (CLICK) a while back, which is a little more interesting, but looks like from the same wood.

I did get around to doing a Google and found a pic of a guitar with a redwood burl top. Again, interesting and unique:

All "luncaster" aside, based upon that pic, i think i like it. Yes sir, i do. :)

...and speaking of Huber, here's a Huber with a burl redwood top:
