      Lovely wood.

      I like the yellow bits in the back too.  Are they being excluded because of stability issues?

      That’s awesome. That’s not a bad delivery date either. It’s food for thought.

      African Blackwood yes? Nice! I kinda like a bit of sapwood on blackwood backs.

      This guitar will probably live the vast majority of the time I will enjoy it in DADGAD.

      Will be voiced/setup/and strung for DADGAD. Old Hands are liking that tuning more every day.

      A. Blackwood/ Moon Spruce.

      Carolyn is out of touch till 7/12 so I sent a email asking about the Gold Sap wood……I too like the look.

      It looks like the back outline cuts it out.

      A bit of that sapwood could be included in the back, but thats an aesthetic choice more than anything else – personally,  knowing a little about the intended decoration and concept, I’d be concerned it might be a bit of visual distraction rather than appeal –

      In an email exchange with Carolyn I learned that (as most suspected) the sapwood was going to be an “out cut” and not usable on the 000.

      She is going to send me the Out Cuts along with the guitar……..I’ll make something from the sapwood. A big Toothpick ???

      Hank, make a truss rod cover out of the sap wood and put it on another guitar. 🙂

        Good idea Daniel.

        The Taylor 12er is the only guitar I have with a truss rod cover…..The gold sapwood might match the inlays on the headstock.

      i prefer no sapwood if it can be avoided on a nice piece.  spanish guitar makers seem to like it, especially.  not me:)  i like the way this one is traced!:)
