Sipo Mahogany Neck Blank for Classical Guitar

About This Item

African Sipo ("seepo") is a beautiful mahogany variety. A little bit denser with slightly bolder grain. Can be shipped internationally!

Fine wood for building your own neck.
For over 40 years we've supplied select neck wood to instrument makers. Each kiln-dried planed neck blank is a solid piece that's ready for bandsawing and shaping in your shop.

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 international trade of mahogany is becoming more restricted, the search for comparable alternatives has been ongoing. Sipo is the closest we are finding to the traditional mahogany that does not have any restrictions to shipping it worldwide.

Awesome Neck Wood


Verified Buyer

I love Sipo Mahogany! I've used it on many guitars including my adjustable action lattice guitar necks and on electric guitar necks. Great strength and stability. Carves, sands, and finishes easily. My new favorite neck wood on my classical and electric guitars!


Sipo neck wood


Verified Buyer

I am very impressed with the Sipo neck I received. Excellent quartersawn stock with nice color. My piece arrived at a thickness of well over 15/16". More like 1 1/16" which is nice for flattening, etc. though this piece is already quite flat. Highly recommended.


Quality Sipo


Verified Buyer

A good solid piece of Mahogany for a classical neck although a bit heavy. I would love to get some Spanish Cedar because it is lighter but it's a prohibited export to Australia. I like dealing with Stew Mac.


great sipo


Verified Buyer

If you are considering a mahogany neck this is a truly great material. I've ordered a few of these and all are great. Properly quartersawn and of good density. And one of them had a couple of nice dark brown fibre-stripes along, which made a really nice looking neck.
