My fave was the stack of wood blocks that were going to become parker bodies. Something about that...

Yes this one is the Claro Walnut

Oh by the way, if some one wants some high res. pic send me a mail I can send some of them (it's a 4M file so it may take a while since I have to send an individual mail).

I'll try to post soon, some more focused/organized slideshows soon

You would be surprised at how much heavier that walnut Dragon felt compared to the standard Flys and Dragons.  I had no idea that walnut was that heavy (much more than mahogany).  So it's beautiful - but at a price ;)

If you're gonna throw that much gold on a guitar do the frets too.

Terry explained that there is a process to golden the SS Frets but this is not a definitive and subject to wear...

"Stainless steel" is kind of a catch-all, nontech term. Next time you encounter a hunk of this "steel", apply a magnet to it.

Big surprise: the stuff is "nonferrous". If there be iron within, there is also something which cancels out its attraction to magnets.
