Alder Paint-grade Body Blank

About This Item

Amazing price on a classic guitar tonewood
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 3-4 piece Alder (Alnus rubra) guitar body blanks. These blanks have a few minor imperfections (pin knots, color streaks, etc.) making them perfect for opaque finishes.

Lightweight and easy to work with, Alder is an all time classic for electric guitars. It produces an extremely resonant guitar with a focused midrange, bright highs, and clear bass.

Act quick! At this price, these blanks won't last long.

Approximate dimensions:
20" x 15" x 1.84" (508mm x 381mm x 46mm)

About Alder
Fender's main wood from the 1960s onward, Alder is a big part of what we know as the vintage Fullerton sound. It cuts, sands, and glues extremely well. Alder is closed-grained so it doesn't require pore filling.

Pretty nice

This wood looks pretty nice. Weight is 9.57 lbs as is. After it is cut should be a okay weight for a guitar body. Will have to be slimmed down.

Very good quality body blanks, free of voids and knots, etc. Can't wait to put this on the router to see this one come out.

I must say the customer service from StewMac is absolutely fantastic. Very responsive, very polite and completely customer oriented.

The wood was paint grade, and I was expecting imperfections. There is a knot or two and one big crack, but those will outside the part I will cutting to use. So that is not an issue at all. The usable part is great quality. I wrote to the StewMac support team for advice and I got extremely prompt and knowledgeable response which I much appreciated.

good enough

I bought two alder blanks. I could easily get Telecaster bodies without any blemishes from either one. One of the blanks was big enough to get a Jazzmaster body. The thickness on each blank was about 1.89". I used a drum sander to take them down to 1.79" and a random orbital sander to get them to 1.75". They are both perfectly fine for an opaque finish. Gluing up 8/4 alder into blanks of this size is not as easy as clicking "add to cart", and there is very little difference in price.

Hi
For the price the quality is correct,some dings on one face,but a leveling and a good sanding should resolve the problem,the length is a bit short to make a Jazz bass (at the long horn) but it will do the job.Globally satisfied.I give 4 stars for theese small defaults.
