My brother lives down in Austin, Texas. He has been selling Mesquite Wood Burl for a guy. Just found out about it. I looked up some images on Google and that is a pretty wood. Some people are using it for guitars. Have you ever used Mesquite Wood for a bass? Do you want my brother to contact you?

Hi Kirk, We've never used Mesquite. I'd be happy to talk to your brother about it. Thanks.

[quote="Sheldon Dingwall":d8tm4qfa]Hi Kirk, We've never used Mesquite. I'd be happy to talk to your brother about it.

I am not sure how well it would be for making a guitar. Down in Texas they use it for BBQ a lot. :) I will ask my brother how big the pieces are and if he has any photos. Kirk

My brother from Texas sent some up to Ohio. My other brother here does wood work. Most of this is cut across the grain and would not make good guitar wood. More for tables and stuff like that. One slab that is 4 foot across is worth over $2000. Pretty sure that most of what I saw would be a poor choice for guitars. There was one plank that I saw but it didn't have any interesting burl. He hasn't unloaded all the wood from his pickup yet.
