About This Item

Our Ash (Fraxinus nigra) blanks are the perfect starting point for making your own solidbody guitar or bass. A classic wood for electric guitars, the strong grain and easy workability make it ideal for any build.

Thickness: 1.750" (44.5 mm)
Weight: 9.00 lb (4.1 kg)

One of the most popular electric guitar body woods, Ash has a bold grain that's perfect for clear or tinted finishes. The dynamic tone has been loved since the 1950s.

Tonally, Ash is highly resonant with very balanced note separation. Highs are clear but not harsh, midrange is strong and focused, and the low end is clear and doesn’t get muddy or too dark. Commonly used to create instruments with a maple neck, the versatility of Ash makes it easy to pair with any neck wood.

The strong grainlines can be highlighted when filling and finishing for a dynamic and bold effect. Ash is open-grained, and filler should be used to level the pores before applying a finish. A joy to work with, it cuts and sands with ease, and glues well.

The body blanks are three pieces, joined and grain matched. They’re thickness sanded and ready for bandsawing and routing in your shop.

All WOODSTAX items come with our 100% satisfaction promise and no-hassle returns. If you are unhappy with the wood once you get it, simply return it in its original, unworked condition for a full refund or exchange.
