    Holy Sh!t!!!! :wow:

    This is what you do....Get a box, pack it carefully, Send to my address.

    I want to make book ends....:wow: :D

    Srsly...That is some knock out figure, lets see.....Quilted Flame.....?

    I think thats appropriate...

    Anyone else care to dub this wood into the knighthood flame heraldry?

    I proclaim that as Gorgeous!!! :dude:

    When finished, IMO, that one will be a Tiger flame or a large fingered Fiddleback.

    @JimmyM :shock: Man this top will be absolutely amazing after you're done with it, the figure is out of this world... Completely stunning! BTW, the type of figure is called "cloudy maple" in german :).

    I'm posting some pics, shot this time with a better light. Hope you enjoy. I don't know if the top is a good example of pinstripe, so you decide:

    @RTG Fan
    Why thank you!
    It's not to everybody's taste but I'm hoping it renders a likeness to my all time favourite burst 9-0627
    Gallery
    The end grain on both halves appears to be rift/flat sawn but there is no loss of figure through the boards.

    The quarter-sawn top on your RTG is sweet perfection - like a jacquard silk.
    "Me Likey" :cool:

    Wow, HopelessRomantic, that's gonna be a sweet looking burst. I love it when the flame has a slight angle between the PUPs as this pronounces the top carve remarkably. I hope you keep us updated with the progress

    Matt, BBQ is not a real name, only one given for perfectly straight bookmatched grain because it obviously looks like a BBQ Grill Plate; i.e. nick name.

    Most of the names we use to describe flame patterns (e.g. Fiddleback & Bengal Tiger etc.) are not actually correct, only a simple way to describe Flame for guitar lovers.

    Awesome guitar BTW. Whomever originally picked that one out has seriously good taste in guitars. :D

    Cheers, Rudi
