Koa Back and Side Set for Dreadnought Guitar

About This Item

Hardwood Koa is a visually stunning tonewood with alternating bands of color. It has a sweet-sounding tone that's both loud and warm (like mahogany).

Our back and side sets are Grade AAA Koa, matched for color and grain. Air dried and stable, koa accepts stain well and is easy to sand.

Bookmatched set of two. When joined they're large enough for a Dreadnought size guitar. Sides are unprofiled (rectangular) and unbent.

    Back dimensions
  • Each half is approximately 9" x 22" (229mm x 559mm)
  • Thickness-sanded to 0.115" - 0.120" (2.92mm x 3.05mm)
    Side dimensions
  • Each half is approximately 5-1/2" x 34" (140mm x 864mm)
  • Thickness-sanded to 0.095" - 0.100" (2.41mm x 2.54mm)

AAA  flame Koa and Stew-Mac a great combo


Verified Buyer

First, I must say that I ordered the AAA med flame Koa back and sides and I just did not like what I received, for no other reason than my personal esthetic. Lets face it, the artist in my craftsmanship is quite specific.

One call to Stew-Mac and another set was on the way. I noticed on the paperwork with this second back and sides set that my preferences had been noted and a special pick was requested. Yes, it's all good; I look forward to when I get to this Koa build. In addition to the Medium flame the figure pattern of the Koa is quite unique and the back book match is like no other Koa I have seen.

Thanx Stew-Mac, your customer service accounts for this order elevating from a four star to five stars.
