it's been acrylic stabilized so it's very stable and hard. Amboyna is very hard anyway. I would venture to guess a piece of Amboyna like this big enough to make a guitar back or front would run in the $500 - 1000 range

Very nice. But how about the whole solid body being made out of the wood he is showing here with the natural color change being incorporated? I love a nice Les Paul, and that birds eye maple top is mighty pretty.

I'm thinking 2" thick and 16" x 14". I true custom Fender or Gibson runs close to $5000 or more so the type of wood almost becomes a secondary consideration in cost.

oh I thought you meant take your parts and make one. If they make it it would cost a fortune.
