just wondering if anyone knows if redgum is any good for necks, or if it has tonal qualities for a body??

maybe some of the aussie guys may have used this timber before??

(ps i did a search several times on "redgum", and kept coming up with errors)

holy mother chucker!, i love that tele,

i was gonna use cooktown iron wood for the body of my tele, but decided to stick to the plan and use mahogany. as for red gum... ive heard its a relatively good tone wood, same goes for ironbark(the worlds hardest and most dense hardwood)

but yeah, its a pretty good, ask around some local luthiers may help u out, i knew 1 down there, cant remember his name but will see if i can find it.
