About Swamp Ash
Swamp Ash (Fraxinus americana) is a classic wood for electric guitars. Since the 1950s, top builders like Fender have revered its iconic bold look and balanced tone. Well-suited for any style and pickup pairing, it does anything from country to metal with ease.

Tonally, Swamp Ash is highly resonant with very articulate note separation. Highs are clear but not harsh, midrange is strong and focused, and the low end doesn't get muddy or too dark. Commonly used to create instruments with a maple neck, however the versatility of Swamp 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. Swamp Ash is open-grained, and filler should be used to level the pores before applying a finish. A joy to work with—it cuts, sands, and glues well.

Get the right blank for your build
These blanks are ideal for making a solid body guitar with a translucent finish. If you want to add a top, we also have thinner Swamp Ash blanks, making it easy to glue on your top and start shaping. Prefer a solid, opaque color? Check out these Swamp Ash Paint-grade Body Blanks.
