Tiger Wood

Recommended Posts

I have enough tiger wood in my shop for four necks, but I've never seen it used before. I let sit and dry for a long time and there's been no warping. It seems like pretty stable wood, but I'm iffy about using it until I know a little more about it.

It's a little heavier than mahogany, looks waxy like rosewood, and is red like bloodwood. I think it'd make beautiful necks, especially paired with the right body.

Does anyone have any experience with it or know much about it?

My main concern is if it will hold up after years of guitar strings pulling on it. It seems to be sturdy, but I've never seen for a neck before.

I'll get some next time I'm in my shop.
