Pomelon?!

Granadillo fretboards are back. Got a few. Best wood for fingerboards. Stable like padauk, hard like ebony but without the fussiness of ebony.

Flatback archtop will be ready for the recurve by tomorrow. 

Stained the sides with violin stain.

I think i solved the mystery of this top. it is hongsong - pinus koraiensis. 

I got a guy to cut some hongsong for an archtop and leftover for 2 acoustics and I will confirm it is, but pretty sure for now

Hongsong chinese pine arrived. 

It's a lot whiter/yellower than i thought. 

It rings well, it's gonna make a good top. The smell is very strong, still can't tell if the padauk+sinker cedar is actually hongsong... 

 Anyway, no knots, straight, quartersawn, what more can you ask for.

But today i also made some (surely) cedar (supposedly canadian) into an archtop blank. It's sooooo light and aromatic. Very nice straight cut too. Gonna get a nanmu back so i get the lightest 18incher ever.
