About our mahogany neck blanks Used in traditional guitarmaking, genuine mahogany is very stable, dense, and is one of the best woods for woodworking; it sands easily, routered edges stay crisp and sharp, and it accepts stains and finish. Unsurpassed working and finishing qualities.
While mahogany is becoming more restricted, the search for comparable alternatives has been ongoing. Sipo (pronounced see-po) is the closest we are finding to the traditional mahogany that does not have any restrictions to shipping it world wide.
Spanish cedar (actually neither Spanish nor cedar) is a fragrant, lighter-weight mahogany. It was used for 1800s Martin necks, and has reappeared in several new Martin steel-string models, as well as in classical guitars from custom builders.
