A few shots of my latest attempt to get some usable manzanita sets. There might be one or two tenor sets, but I ran into some holes, so it's either sopranos, or headstock veneer. Or kindling.

Cool! What sort of a tonewood is manzanita?

Good question, I wish I knew. :)

I use it for the back, sides, and fingerboard. I think it's too hard and dense for the soundboard, but it might have good sound reflective qualities.

Here's a YT sound sample of my most recent completed build.
