Good wood

(Customer's Reviews)

Used this as the body wood on a recent Bass build. The blank I received was a three piece body, even thickness and no knots. Topped it with Walnut and used black binding then routed the edge to gain a two tone effect. Looks really good. Will use this again.


Very good

(Customer's Reviews)

I was very pleased with the quality on this piece of wood.
I added some colour and lacquer to the finish. Think the wood turned out great.


Nice chunk of wood

(Customer's Reviews)

a bit pricey for when you figure the board foot.
