New Sapelli Day!

Recommended Posts

Indeed...why not buy the whole board, eh?

My local yard actually still has a few boards like that - wide enough for 1-piece blanks ribbon, dead on quartered. I got a few I'll mostly be converting to neck stock (largely done) and back/side sets for acoustics, though, because I find most sapele is crazy heavy for electrics. Lots of variability there as well, though..

This game sucks


This type of wood is not known for having any figure.


It could be basswood, I have already seen basswood with similar looks, not sure that it suits neck construction...

Or it could be some ''quilt ScottR'' which is a new specie from the project guitar family? Must check the wood encyclopedia 2011 :D
