MetalMan Posted April 11, 2011 Report Share Posted April 11, 2011 Hello, I have a 1983 NJ Mockingbird that has been sitting in the closet forever because it has some MAJOR body damage around the controls area. I did not find this out until i stripped the primer off it after i got it. So it sat. Won a bridge on ebay the other night for it so i figure it is time to bring it back to life. Catalog scan from 1983 says it is supposed to be Maple, but i don't think it looks like maple. Far from being any kind of woodworking expert, what do i know. After scanning google images it looks more like Alder. Or even maybe some type of Mahogany? I cut the offending corner of the guitar off with the plan of gluing up a chunk of wood to it to rebuild that part of the guitar. I want to use the same type of wood and have the grain run the same to hopefully keep expansion/contraction problems to a minimum. I figure that is the way to do it. I hope someone can tell me from the picture what type of wood it is. Thanks for your time. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
