Honduran Mahogany Body Blank

About This Item

Fantastic mahogany at an even more fantastic price
Every once in a while a deal comes together that you just can't say no to. This is one of them.

We've secured a stash of high quality, one and two-piece (center-joined), mixed-grade Honduran Mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla) body blanks. However, don't let that "mixed-grade" throw you. These blanks are extremely nice, many grade much higher. While a few very small pin knots and other blemishes are present, they are remarkably straight grained and are extremely nice for the price.

And, if you're clever, many of the imperfections can be hidden in pickup routes, under pickguards, or even featured as a visual aesthetic element.

Dollar for dollar the quality and appearance of these blanks will be very hard to beat.

Honduran Mahogany is exceptional to work with and a joy to stain and finish. There's a reason Genuine Mahogany has been the premier mahogany species on guitars for decades. Not only does it look beautiful, but it's a dream to work with too. It cuts and sands easily, routes cleanly, and stains and finishes effortlessly.

Act quick! This amazing wood won't last at this price.

Honduran Mahogany is becoming harder to get due to international regulations, and supplies are becoming more limited everyday.

Approximate dimensions:
20.5" x 14.25" x 1.75" (520mm x 362mm x 44.45mm)

Great body blank

By

Verified Buyer


The center seam was flawless and this body blank was incredibly resonant and musical even as just a big slab of wood. Highly recommend this for anyone in search of a mahogany body.

Beautiful and light

Weighs about 32 lb/bdft. Pretty light for Honduran mahogany. It has a couple of spots, one a small split on the end not in the body. The other is a small spot or mineral deposit.

I have high expectations...

This is a great hunk of wood. One piece and good color too. I haven't decided if it is a SG or Les Paul Jr yet, but it will have a 24 fret mahogany neck.

Great body blanks and even better service

By

Verified Buyer


I've bought stuff from StewMac for 30 years and have always had good service. I mentioned in my order form that it would be nice if StewMac could carry quatersawn blanks, which I haven't seen for several years now given that you have to get the logs specially cut that way and one quatersawn body equals four or more acoustic backs and sides sets which is not economical at the retail level. Without me asking, Josh at Stewmac picked two of the best flatsawn bodies I've seen in a very long time. It was a thoughtful and super nice thing to do - I just appreciate it and wanted to say so.

Nice looking billets

I ordered three. Two looked about like I expected, nice mahogany grain. One has some really interesting figuring. I'll save that for when I can think of what to do with it.
