The photos don't do the box justice. The lighting is too yellow.

Re: Olive Wood Accordion

Thats just about one of the pertiest accordions I've seen to come out of Larry's shop. Larry is not afraid to try some different woods in his work and it sure pays off. He showed me one made from Peach last year. Got the logs of an old Ruston Peach farm in north LA.
Talk about pretty.
