Swamp Ash Body Blank

About This Item

Build your dream guitar! Our swamp ash blanks are the perfect starting point for making your own solidbody guitar or bass.

They're joined, 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)

Swamp ash has bold grain that's appropriate for clear or tinted finishes. It's lighter in weight than Northern "baseball bat" ash, for good tone. Ash is open-grained, and filler should be used to level the pores before applying a finish. This is a joined 2-piece blank.

Trade Secrets!

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.

Ok my last review on the swamp ash was correct. but upon calling Customer Service and voicing my disappointment to my surprise they told me they would send me three more blanks, they even went and hand picked the blanks and sent them and supplied a postage paid return box to sent back the other blanks. My apologies Stewmac and Thank you. Henry

In the picture and first caption you read on the body blanks was the impression this was a solid piece of wood not two halves glued together. I even got a blank that was three pieces of wood glued together. Then the grain on two blanks were not matched. very disappointed in this as now I have to thickness sand and put a veneer top on them.

sorry, but i'm not happy with this wood it's not so heavy, but not light as much as i expetted it to be , i purchased swamp elsewhere in the past tha was half the weight of this piece, but what was aweful was the grain match...a blind would have done it the end i'l always buy from stewmac, but surelly not this ash!
