    So excited! This will be my first "legit" board that looks as good as I do! :) Talked to John on the phone this evening and he's a super nice guy that took the time to talk to me about his products and their philosophy on building boards. This one is made out of 60 year old reclaimed redwood. I think it looks really nice. This one should help me with my OCD organization habits as well!

    Are you going to gig with it, and/or are you worried about the softness of the redwood?

    It was $259. For a board of this caliber I think thats a good value.

    No plans to gig with it. Should stay in my music room almost 100% of the time. Because of that the wood didn't concern me.

    Do these come with some sort of case or bag if you were to gig with it?

    Beautiful board but I can't justify the price after factoring in a case (which obviously is needed)

    Yup, then you are in Helweg/Salvage territory money-wise. I thought the same thing, almost picked up that exact board off the site but ended up passing.

    Beautiful board though nonetheless :aok

    They have a soft bag but it's a separate price. Since this won't be a gigging board I decided to forgo the bag for now.

    Thanks! Yeah since I didn't need a case that definitely helped me make my decision. :)

    Took me a bit to pull the trigger as well but life's too short. :)

    No... This board is redwood. As a far softer wood than most others commonly used, it is therefore more susceptible to dings, dents and looking far more shabby faster than say a birch counterpart...

    I see where you were trying to go, but I think it's irrelevant in this case. For what it's worth, I use a hardwood angled board very similar to this one, myself.

    Sorry, OP. If you feel this is derailing the thread, I'll delete it. Sweet board!

    Looks good, but that's a lot of money for a "stay at home" board.

    Man I wish Blackbird or Trailer Trash would do cable routing like this. They claim they cannot because of pedaltrain. Their prices are so much more on point than these boutique guys, but I would love some horizontal slots rather than a circle at the top...

    Check out Chumley's Pedalboard Shop. Here's mine. It was about $150. I chose the tolex and stained top. He also offers stained frames (all are solid wood - very light.) and carpeted tops. He's been running specials on his Facebook with even better prices - as if they weren't already crazy good! He also just started taking gear in trade toward builds. Top quality work and an excellent guy to deal with.
