African Mahogany Body Blank

About This Item

The perfect starting point for making your own solidbody guitar or bass. They're joined, thickness-sanded and ready for bandsawing and routing in your shop.

Approximate dimensions:
13-3/4" x 20-1/2" x 1-3/4" (349.25mm x 520mm x 44.45mm)

African Mahogany body blanks can be shipped outside the USA, and are becoming a popular alternative to restricted traditional Honduras mahogany.

Mahogany is open-grained, and filler should be used to level the pores before applying a finish. The wood is beautiful when finished in clear or tinted lacquer.

Very good wood

By

Verified Buyer


After reading about Sapele being a very dense wood I was surprised by how light my two pieces have been. I just weighed the last one, and it’s 4.6 kilos. This is about the same or even lighter than some Honduras Mahogany I have seen advertised online. It may still be heavier than what they had in the good old days, but the way things are now this seems like an excellent alternative. And of course, it’s perfect thickness and absolutely flat. A pleasure to work with.

Great Starting Point for Your Custom Solid-Body Guitar!

My son designed a solid-body electric guitar which we call the "Jetfire." After he finished designing it, we used this mahogany body blank from StewMac to create the body. It is dense, and easy to work. We think it came out great!

Nice Piece of Wood!

The Mahogany Body Blank arrived promptly. It is just the right thickness, has no cracks or other flaws, and is big enough for a large bass body. It was nice not to have to glue pieces together before I could start cutting out the pattern. Love it!

Very nice piece of wood.

The wood is as advertised. Nice grain, no knots or blemishes. Mine came nice and flat and ready to go. A little pricey, but it is hard to find one piece of lumber this thick and wide. Usually you would have to glue them up, so I think the premium price is worth it in this case.
