Sapele Mahogany Back and Side Set for Ukulele

About This Item

Build a traditional ukulele
The most popular ukulele tonewood, mahogany delivers a focused sound with broad mids and highs. African Sapele is a beautiful mahogany variety. A little bit denser with slightly bolder grain. Can be shipped internationally!

Bookmatched set includes two quartersawn halves and matched sides. When joined, they are large enough for a soprano or tenor ukulele. Sides are unprofiled (rectangular) and unbent. Kiln-dried.

    Back set dimensions:
  • Each half is approximately 5-1/4" x 13" (133mm x 330mm)
  • Thickness-sanded to 1/8" (3.18mm)
    Side set dimensions:
  • Each half is approximately 3-3/4" x 20" (95mm x 508mm)
  • Thickness-sanded to 3/32" (2.38mm)

Sapele Mahogany can be shipped outside the USA, and is becoming a popular alternative to restricted traditional Honduran Mahogany.

I like to use mahogany for my uke tops so I ordered one of these to see what they were like. I've built two guitars with Sipo back and sides and find it to be very close to genuine mahogany. Good stuff.
