    That didn't take long. I guess it was too easy! ;-)

    It is American (black) walnut.

    It made a nice top, though! Some of the prettiest woods on the planet grow right in our back yards.

    Damn! Nice. I only guessed that because of some of the colors. I have a walnut backed acoustic, so I'm a little familiar with it.

    Nice wood, and guitar.
    It's surprising how much of the character of koa that piece has.

    When they're Ron Thorn's, they're guitars and art. It's a 2fer.
