Preferably in the San Francisco Bay Area.
My son has decided to embark on a project, not entirely unlike the one
charlieb has been describing with his 'kid'. (His is 27, mine is 30.) But
it will be in my shop, using my tools, and my head will likely get
scratched more than once.
He wants to build an acoustic bass guitar. We have a good friend, who will
help him through a lot of this, but the friend's health is fragile, and
I/we don't want to drag him all over looking for just the right materials.
So, can anyone recommend a good source for instrument grade woods? Spruce,
woods from the rosewood families, etc. Mail order would be ok, but this is
sort of a tactile thing, as well as visual, so we would prefer to be able
to go and touch & buy, as opposed to trust & hope by mail.
