Ended later at night, 10:30 ish Eastern time. I was amazed I got it. Best push pin on the planet. Shannon knows how to make them not only look good, but man can they talk turkey....

No body followed up on sort of a question. The call you have is African Blackwood and Shannon does use Ebony on the bottom for the soundboard. Take a look at his many photos, no matter if the call is snakewood or mahogany he uses the same bottom from what I see. Seems I remember him writing that after many years he chose this special process of putting it under extreme pressure to make his soundboard. But Shannon can explain this way more than I can since my memory stinks. Nice call by the way. Congrats

Yes, the soundboard seems to be everything. I think my call could be Gaboon Ebony from the calls he references on his video. It sounds awesome. Thanks so much.....

You are right, I remember a lot of Gaboon Ebony's and never recall African Blackwood.

Yes, I think Shannon started making the African Blackwood in 2019. My call also does not have titanium on the striker, it is wood. I believe he stated using metal on the striker recently. Again, it sounds fantastic, I love it.

Thanks, be safe...
