Lizard_King Posted February 13, 2005 Report Share Posted February 13, 2005 I was given 8 boards, averaging 6ft in length some longer some slightly shorter, and it's all at least 6 inches wide and 1 1/4 inches thick. They guy that gave them to me, said it was African Mahogany......The thing is it looks nothing like the Mahogany I already had. It's a dark brown, has some red tint in it, even some goldish brown in it. I looked on a couple of sites, and it kinda resemble a rosewood, maybe even cocobola(spelling?!?).I just trying to find out what kind it is, and if it's suitable for making a fretboard out of. Just kinda trying to save on cost a little bit. Not cutting corners or anything just trying to find out if I can actually use this stuff or if I should just shell out some bucks and buy some more wood. I don't have a way of posting any picts, which probably doesn't help much. But if I can come up with a digital camera I'll get some up. Thanks in advance.
