I've seen a lot of Koa in my time, but I've NEVER before seen Birdseye Koa 😍. We're going to make several necks from these two boards and they're sure to be something special. Just had to share with y'all.

Care to share your spec ideas for these necks? Peg head shape? Fingerboard? Inlay?

That's gorgeous, so just do whatever will show off the beauty. I'm guessing a 59 profile would do the trick. As to fret board, something exotic, but plainish and darkish, like zircote. Pearloid diamond fret makers. Stainless or gold med jumbo wide frets. Tusq nut. As to width, I got biggish hands, but don't go by me, do the width you sell the most of. Headstock shape? Dealer's choice.

Interesting that those show up the same week as the green comet. Take a good look people, because you'll never see either one again.

I won't know what we can even get out of it until our wood processing guys take a good look at it. The boards are definitely not wide enough for the arcade head though.
But might they be wide enough for a 1.75" nut width? Waste not, want not!

(Okay at that point it'd just be for me, but a guy can dream, right?)
