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.

Nice alternative to the typical tonewoods

(Customer's Reviews)

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.

I'm impressed. Really nice chunk of wood to be used for a body back...(Jarrah top)
Excellent service and very quick postage.
Thanks StewMac


Primavera Mustang

(Customer's Reviews)

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.
