Dave Fifield, I've got your 26E, 26F, and 26G if you're still interested. Like the others they run $90.00 each (without s/h). [:Y:]

BTW we also have one more 3"x4$x26"; four more 3"x4"x24" and four 3"x4"x30". The 24s are priced like the above blanks ($80.00) and the 30s are $100.00. These others are not quite as well quartered as the billets listed above.

Swap On,
Andrew Gribble

Great stuff there Andrew...

If I had any cash, I'd snag those cocobolo sets! They're really great, and a very attractive price too. For anyone wanting to do two similar guitars, or double backs and sides, those two with the sapwood are fantastic.

24D is yours; thanks Ken!

Don, I agree and like all four of the Cocobolo sets. The two with sap wood are indeed 'sister' sets and would make a great matched set of guitars (one of the back sets has been inverted to line the grain lines up a bit differently). All of the back and side sets are still available.

Thanks everyone!

Thanks Uncle Bob, the Olivewood sets are pretty spectacular though not the easiest to get a good match between the backs and sides. This wood has to have one of the most pleasant aromas IMO.

peterm, which set(s) are you interested in?

Thanks Andrew!

I'm still looking for 10 sets of Honduran Mahogany in dred size. Worm holes and knots dont matter if they are outside of the pattern. straight grained, no frills stuff is better than figured mahogany for what I need.

I still need a few sets of East Indian Rosewood too.
