So marking the customs ticket - "Kiln-dried hardwood veneer" Would that be enough? Or should I be more specific about the species?
"flooring samples" work for me at least 20-25 times

Re: Mango Tenor

Nice looking build Jim

Did you keep the mango on the thick side?
Did it seem a little soft?Would mango work on a flat top guitar?

Re: Native Olive OM

Hi John
That end wedge is awesome! :cl

It is the first that I have ever seen in that style with no line between the wedge and the guitar side.
How were those sides to bend?

Cheers
Jonny
