You ever have somebody respond to an old topic you created but have no recollection of having written it in the first place? I was thinking as I read it.....I wonder who is thinking of using ebony? Oh, that would be me....I'm thinking of it, again.
I bound in ebony for the first time just recently and found it to be hands down the easiest material I've used. I guess I like to ask questions 4 or 5 years in advance.
Bent like plastic, retained its shape, doesn't bleed, joints blend together nicely, and it makes for a solid uniform color. The sooty sawdust is a downer but it tastes ok...has a vanilla pepper flavor, light on the pallet.
I'll use it again on one of the guitars I hope to build for 2017.
