Hemlock Question

Recommended Posts

Hello, better builders than I,

I was given (yes, given) two Hemlock beams from a store that was built in the 1800's. I am planning on using it for the wings of my next build, but the amount of wood here had me thinking: can Hemlock be a good wood for sides in an acoustic guitar? I have not tried to build an acoustic yet, but I was given a Yamaha acoustic guitar years ago that had the back smashed in, the sides are bowed out, but the neck is in great shape.


Thanks Much,
