African Mahogany Body Blank

About This Item

Solid 1-piece blank! The perfect starting point for making your own solidbody guitar or bass. 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.

This is a solid, 1-piece blank.

Quite a pricey slab...but the piece of wood I received was of excellent quality! The grain pattern was oriented in such a way as to bring out it's maximum depth and beauty. Very pleased!

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.

Everything about this piece of timber is nice! Great colour, spot on dimensions, flat and also has a nice figure.... almost a pity to cover it with a veneer. I could rave on about it for ages but I will restrain myself! Another quality item from StewMac!

I ordered my second piece of Mahogany from StewMac and couldn't be happier. The piece is in great condition, both faces are perfectly flat and the sides are cut to exact the dimensions listed. I cant wait to turn this piece into an instrument that'll be in my family for generations. As always, StewMac's service is second to none. I ordered the piece Thursday morning, and it was at my door two days later on Saturday morning.
