[Cocobolo at Alembic] [Cocobolo at Alembic] I was up at Alembic last night, and this beautiful pair of bookmatched Cocobolo boards was waiting to be turned into a guitar. Both images at reasonable size.

A book match join of those two pieces would best be framed as an art piece by itself.

Yeah, I was trying to figure out broaching the "why don't I just write you a check and leave with these tonight?" question, but a customer has already fallen in love with it and is trying to figure out exactly where they'd like their guitar body cut from it (that'll be the front and back of one, and the front of another), and that's more than several hundred bucks worth of wood...

Steve – a guy I used to work with – is in the process of building his own guitar and is documenting the process on his flickr stream. http://www.flickr.com/photos/steve0_f/
