Call it anything you like, but ugly.

Humpy Twang is another. Hmmm. Redwood Burl and the Humpy Twangs.

Yeah.

Never argue with The Builder. I should have researched the original post, rather than going over to pick up the git and trusting my own eyes. ;-) But it still has at humpy twang, leastwise, the way I play it.

Hmmm. Redwood Burl is a good song title. Hmmm.

Point off order. It's redwood burl veneer. ;-)

Sawbones,

It's a wooden Cohiba Toro cigar box, with the top overlaid with a Birdseye maple veneer. The neck is about the thickness aof a baseball bat (no truss rod). The copper reso gives it a thumpy twang.
