The first slab will become a slightly scaled down 335. The second slab is telling me it wants to be a lap steel. The rest of the useable wood will be ukulele sets or parlor.

Pretty! Is that the end grain we're looking at?

Wow, nice stuff. Is burl stable enough to use as a guitar or uke set??

I wouldn't use a set of that. Once it's down to 1.5mm it could do anything. Better for electric droptops and the like.

Yeah Dave you are basically looking at mostly quarter sawn slabs out of a large burl. Yeah Liam, Im sure you are correct. These are idea for electric body laminations. I mainly just wanted to show the pics because the natural outline of the bookmatch just looks like a guitar shape.

Am I the only one who sees Munch's The Scream in the second photo?
