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), "second-grade" Honduran Mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla) body blanks. However, don't let that "second-grade" throw you. These blanks are extremely nice. While yes, a few very small pin knots and other blemishes are present, they are remarkably light-weight and many have strong ribbon figure or even flame.

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 blanks and even better service

By

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.

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.

The good stuff

I ordered one of the one-piece blanks and it was just what I hoped it would be. The description is right on the money. It is not perfect but don't let that keep you from ordering - there is nothing on the blank that I received that will be a problem. Also I will be using it to build a Les Paul style with 59 specs and no weight relief. The piece I received is right at 2.4 LBS / BF. That will work! This stuff is getting very hard to find - I am very happy with this purchase!
