Figured Myrtle Bookmatched Guitar Drop Top

Myrtle is one of our specialty woods, as it is grown and harvested right here in our home state of Oregon, hand selected by us, trucked with our semi to our yard, and carefully milled in our facility. Myrtlewood is renowned throughout the Pacific Northwest for its excellent machining and finishing properties as well as its beautiful color, spicy aroma, and figure. Also known as Bay Laurel, California Olive, Pepper wood, or Spice tree wood, this versatile hardwood grows only in Oregon and Northernmost California. Colors range drastically even in the same log so that a range from golden yellow, green, black, brown, tan, and violet can exist. Each board is unique, making each project a one of a kind. Flame or fiddleback is a rare quality that few boards posses. Myrtle wood is great for the beginner and expert alike. These Myrtle drop tops are kiln dried and surfaced.  Ready to use.  Great color and figure in many of these.  A few rough edges or minor defects on some that can be worked around. Burl, fiddleback, and tiger stripes!  This is half the price of competitors because we own the mill!
