    It's hard to see the grain in the pics. Is it mostly flat or quarter sawn?

    Predominantly flat sawn. Noticeably flat sawn in the middle and getting noticeably more rift sawn out towards the edges. These piece were all slab cut somewhere out from the middle of the log. I myself am ok using whatever grain orientation for fretboards.
