Default Historic wood

I just finished up this guitar today. The body and neck are both made from the original flooring from Cain's Ballroom. This is the same flooring that saw Bob Wills, Hank Sr., The Sex Pistols, and so many other historic music acts. I'm building 4 guitars from the flooring. This one is being raffled off to raise money for Tulsa Schools music education, 2 will go back to Cain's, and the last one will be the only one for sale.

that is amazing. How do you finish it to retain all of that patina, and yet be suitable for use?

Excellent, as always! But... you owe me a phone, because my guitarist buddies keep covering mine with drool when they see your creations.

Thanks, Marcros. Well, considering this was a dance floor, I don't think it needs any extra protection . I did put a few coats of Formby's Tung Oil Finish on it to bring out the colors a little more, though.

You are talented, keeping the rustic quality of the wood while making a precision instrument is quite incredible. Well done!
