Lightbulb Wood names..

I have modified the names of two of the woods we use on our Basses.

Shedua, aka Ovankol is also known as African Walnut but we have never used that name. I just changed the listing on some parts of the website to say 'African Walnut' (Shedua). This is a very underrated wood. Perhaps the name change will help gain more recognition.

The other underrated wood is Imbuia aka Brazilian Walnut. Because there is an actual walnut in tropical America, the general trade stopped using the walnut nick name for Imbuia. So, now we have re-listed it as 'Brazilian Walnut' (Imbuia) in parts of the website.
