How big IS it?  You need to stand in the picture so we can see...

Also, where is it?  And how much does it cost?    :eek:

As a former professional heat and A/C installer, I would be willing to bet that those register covers you can see behind the track lights at the top of the pic are twelve inches long, that puts some perpective to it.

But since they call their operation 'wood veneers' it's probably just a few mm thick, much thinner than a lam top even. It looks great but I don't think it would be suitable for building a guitar from.

Quite possible, but they have more than just veneers. They also sell exotic lumber of most other thicknesses... :dontknow:
