    I have been to the 11Top Library and the PRS Wood Library a few times now. There is actually more exotic wood in Steve's than Paul's!!!

    Is that a plank of purple heart in the first two pics I see???

    I think I see a Giant hunk of English walnut with 2 guitars in it??

    I'll venture some wild guesses.
    I'd really like 1 to be Myrtle, but parts of it seem to dark, which tempts me to wonder if you found a gnarly cocobolo.
    2 has some of the quality of Royal Macassar, which I'd like to build something from one day because of the great contrast between the dark and the light sapwood - samples I've seen are blacker than this though and don't have as prominent a grain.
    The spalt on 3 disguises the underlying wood - which I want to be maple, but the grain in the center doesn't is far from typical of maple.

    So, I don't really know enough to say anything but that I like them.

    Peter:
    I wondered when you were going to chime in. #3 is indeed spalted maple.

    3 right so far, guys !
