Swamp Ash Body Blank for Laminated Top

Quality Swamp Ash is rapidly disappearing, so we've been building our stash of this amazing sounding wood for our customers. Ready for routing and shaping, these blanks are ready for your custom build.

We've done the hard work for you! These blanks are cut thinner to allow for a 3/16" (4.82mm) laminated top, perfect for a Superstrat-inspired build. Just glue up your top, and start shaping. Many modern builders pair Swamp Ash with a flame maple top for stunning looks and amazing tone.

These blanks can also be used without a laminated top when crafting a thinner body. Each blank is expertly joined and thickness sanded—ready for bandsawing and routing in your shop.

Approximate dimensions:
20-1/2" x 13-3/4" x 1-5/8" (520.7mm x 349.25mm x 41.37mm)

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.

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