From the "Why Didn't I Think of That" Department...
In this easy tutorial video, Louie LaManna shows how to take two different woods (in this case, walnut and oak), tape them together and cut a cool Mississippi River design that runs the length of the fretboard.
Note: It is very important that both pieces of wood are the same width and thickness.
Pictured below is the Future Legend cigar box guitar built by Shane Speal featuring one of the actual fretboards seen in this video.
Cool trick Louie. Amazing how something so simple can look so good.
thanks for sharing the tip. I enjoy watching your videos Louie.
Thank you Shane for posting these.
