kickz28 Posted January 16, 2004 Report Share Posted January 16, 2004 I would like to buy swamp ash for my guitar but it seems most suppliers to refer to it as "swamp" ash. http://www.precisecut.com/materials/wood/ash.htm This site seems to give the different names for the same species of ash Fraxinus nigra*-American Black Ash, Basket Ash, Black Ash, Brown Ash, Canadian Ash, Hoop Ash, Splinter Ash, Swamp Ash, Water Ash I'm pretty sure this is the type of ash I want? So if a supplier only refers to it as Ash, what do I assume it to be? White ash? (which is not what I want(?)) Edit: Damnit! Fraxinus nigra is hard to find. Is white ash very different, for a guitar? What's the best place to get it, it must be cheaper to buy the wood than to order a body blank from Stewmac (100) or USACG (60) ?! Edit numer 2: A few places I called say they have brown ash, but they never have it 1 3/4 (or 2) inches thick. Where the hell am I going to find the proper wood for this project!?
