'66 Kodiak Sandwich Bow.

Postby George D. Stout » Tue Apr 28, 2009 11:53 am

Now maybe I haven't been paying proper attention, but this is the first 66 Kodiak I ever owned that was a two piece vertical laminate. This one is bubinga and golden rosewood. All the others I have had were solid bubinga risers with bubinga caps.
60", 45#.

I have not seen that either George, pretty hot wood combo.
Did you give up on the directions for the phenolic from me?

Kurt, it's laying on my table in the basement, waiting for me to get in the mood :oops: I'm kind of a slow-starter.

As far as I know, that's entirely unique, George. Looks like they might have been utilizing large scrap pieces?

A side question; when did Brazillian rosewood become unavailable?

Jett, I'm not sure about that, probably sometime in the 1980's.

I sent extra, so just cut a piece off, glue it to an edge of scrap wood, and see how it sands.
