    I'm curious about something. If these tops aren't bookmatched, then what are they? Halves from different trees?
    They -are- book matched...
    Oh I know they are. I was only wondering what someone would refer to them as otherwise.

    Oh, there's "slip-matched", and yes, some companies (i.e. Gib$on) will use no matched pieces in their opaque top lesters...

    Even if it's a little off on one side, you'd think they would just airbrush it to even it out, jeesh.

    Or do I have to go Private Stock for that??
