I saw this slab of spalted Maple and instantly saw what looked to me like a flying duck in the wood..
I thought that it might make a really cool looking guitar and I think it did ! I have chrome shotgun shell bottoms that are the for the volume knobs. ( not in picture )

A beautiful piece of wood. How punky was it? I only ask because you may have problems down the road with prolonged string tension on it. Or you might not. I have built with spalted before and the stuff I used was soft enough that it made the guitars sound a little dead. But there is no denying that wood looks stellar.

Brian. Its funny. The center part with the duck is very solid so the neck gets a really good bite into the body.
Being an electric guitar that I really only play unplugged it has a very nice sound because of the bridge and nut taking up most of the work.

Very cool guitar. You have a very eclectic mix of items on your projects page. I really like the diversity. Different skill set and techniqiue for each and every project, I should think. Nice work!
