Primavera Body Blank

About This Item

One-piece blank, thickness-sanded and ready for bandsawing and routing in your shop: a great starting point for making your dream guitar or bass!

Primavera is known as "white mahogany." It's lighter in weight than traditional mahogany, with smaller pores. It resembles swamp ash somewhat, with a slightly yellowish color. Primavera has been used in solidbodies by luthiers Michael Tobias and Tom Anderson.

Approximate dimensions: 14" x 21" x 1-3/4" (355.5mm x 533mm x 44.45mm)

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

Primavera 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, stable, 1-piece blank.

The simplest custom build ever?

Erick Coleman builds a custom guitar that's even simpler than Bo Diddley's rectangular axe. It's a great example to show the basics of building an electric guitar.

Excellent Wood

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I can highly recommend this wood. It is a nice looking (not beautiful) piece of wood. As usual, Stewmac shipped the product promptly and it arrived at my house within a few days. The only complaint I have was the actual thickness of the wood was 2", rather than the advertised 1 3/4". Ordinarily, this is a minor and/or insignificant issue, as the wood can be sawed in half, planed, and glued back together to achieve the proper thickness. However, my shop is not yet set up for that (no table saw or planer, as of yet). Fortunately, I was building a Stratocaster and the width of the guitar was just such that it allowed me to cut the wood to where it was just within the parameters of my friend's 13" planer, plane it to 1 3/4", and march forward!

Nice alternative to the typical tonewoods

The piece of Primavera I purchased was lightweight and had a grain pattern much like swamp ash. I am well pleased with the body blank. I am in the process of cutting out and forming a Telecaster out of it. I would certainly recommend this wood.

Primavera Mustang

Having never worked with this wood before I took a chance and ordered this blank for a clear coat Mustang and I'm glad I did.Think stripey mahogany only yellow instead of red.It is lighter than mahogany as promised and I will certainly use it again.
