I've had the guitar for a month now and I'm liking more everyday. The black walnut neck is proving to be as much a surprise as when I first sat down with it.
But, here's my question. After a little research, I found that black walnut is primarily a north american species, and it's cost is right up there with ebony.
So how does a less expensive ($600) Chinese guitar end up with a fairly expensive north american fingerboard?

Oh, I guess that the Black Walnut also exist in China, like in France, or certainly anywhere else in Europe.

A+!
