Flame Sapele Back + Sides, Sanded - 013

Flamed Sapele is a fantastic tonewood that produces all the tone you've come to expect from genuine Mahogany at a much better price. These highly flamed sets will create a visually stunning guitar too.

Minimum Dimensions

  • Back halves: 8-1/4" x 22" x 0.115" (210mm x 559mm x 2.9mm)
  • Sides: 5" x 31-1/2" x 0.090" (127mm x 800mm x 2.3mm)

Flamed Sapele, Entandrophragma cylindricum
Sapele is often referred to as one of the "African Mahoganies", but it is neither a Swietenia nor a Khaya. Due to the large sizes of the trees and commercial availability, Sapele is an affordable tonewood that has many visual and tonal qualities of genuine Mahogany, without the additional import restrictions.

Tonally it is dry, fast, and articulate. It is perfect for flat pickers and players looking to not get lost in a sea of ringing notes or overtones. Many major manufacturers and custom builders love Sapele for both its tonal properties as well as its easy workability.

This Flamed Sapele has dynamic visual properties, with traditional rope figure, to intense curl, to outstanding quilt. Many of the most intensely figured sets are still priced far less than you'd expect for similar figure in Honduran Mahogany.
