    As long as the big companies don't get too far out and outrageous. They depend on being able to sell lots of each model, whereas the custom builder only has to sell one or two of his totally outrageous designs.

    I meant to say large companies are conservative by nature
    The CEO does want to go too far left field
    He will be treated like Henry was

    I think the problem really lies in that market is used to see alternatives as just cost cutting methods or forced in like CITES. Not as a sensible, just as well working option.

    Fenders relied on maple, alder and pine for practicality and it worked well. Now those seem like only acceptable options for more special woods, which is just bizarre.

    I like the look of laurel more than Pau Ferro. I've just never cottoned to the streakiness.

    The most popular thread I've ever made was 1) a joke and 2) based around literally the most inane/mundane question I could think of. That says something about me, or all of you, or both.

    I have an ltd with a jatoba fretboard. Same thing. Really light in color, and dry looking.

    Normally I wouldn't care, but I have developed an affinity for darker fretboards with binding and block inlays, and the light color just doesnt work for me.

    Rosewood, ebony, or bust.

    I think the easing of cites regulations will change this in the not too distant future.
