I've bought a lot of redwood and walnut tops from http://tonewood.com/guitar-wood/solid-b ... woods.html

Are there any other suppliers that use the same method of picturing the exact top you're buying?

That is pretty common, LMII does it for their "special" sets. Gilmer in Portland routinely posts pictures of each set, as does Notable in Seattle (when I bought some koa from Bruce he wetted the plates with alcohol to pop the grain and set me pictures so I could be sure)

I've ordered archtop sets from a couple of sources who posted pictures on their websites.

Oh yes I forgot about Gilmer. Good source. Thanks!

Gobywalnut.com is a good source for walnut and maple.
I've bought some nice redwood from them as well.
