I must be unlucky.

This is the second resonator I buy from Stewart Macdonald and the first one was many years ago. it was very rough and full of dents and splinters on the outer curly veneer. I had to putty and glue many coats to finally end with something decent. This one I received a few days ago is even worst. I would have returned it if I had the time to wait but it arrived here 6 days later than expected ( Thanks to DHL ) and I need it fast, so I kept it. This is a very expensive resonator for the low quality of the outer veneer. I have lost 6 full hours to make this decent. The review box does not load my pictures so I cannot add any.

Now that I can get ready-made resonators of this quality so easily, I don't need to make my own anymore. Very happy with these.
