And just for fun I will add a pic of the best Koa that I have ever seen on a guitar.

OK. I have a question for you.

I see little if any difference between the Koa and the Blackwood, but I am color blind (actually color deficient as I do see colors but have problems distinguishing some particularly in the red-brown-green range).

What I do see or think I see is a tad more gold in the Koa and the grain (not the flame) of the Blackwood is straighter.

Other than that, I don't see much difference. They are both stunning!

Does anyone see more difference than this.

Don I agree with you,not that I'm color deficient.Just that they are very close in color just got some Koa's in with really bold grain stripping that's very dark.

Yeah, Don,
I thought Newton was pulling the leg of the B.B.
(Blackwood Brigade)!  In many photos I have seen cross familiarities, and can see the "family" resemblance.  I also wonder if there is a country difference (environment) that produces a particular type of grain, or maybe a particular niche.  I love that tiger graining.

Although it's hard to tell due to different lighting and so forth, I have to agree with Don as well.  The grain in the BW looks straighter than the Koa and the Koa appears to have a golden or orange hue to it.  These are two great examples of Blackwood and Koa that really show off their family lineage.

Thanks mnewton for the wonderful eye candy! afro

I dunno... reminds me of the custom suit Trapper John bought in an old episode of MASH - the stipes all went the wrong way...

To my tastes, the wood is on sideways. Just my opinion, though...

Whadaya mean they go the wrong way? The grain goes both ways!

Heck, it ain't pinstripe - it's plaid, man!

It is verrry purrty tho! :)

You're just looking at the picture upside down. Flip your monitor over, it'll be fine. B)  :blink:
