Bog oak western guitar bridge blank grade AAA*

Quercus spp. sourced from East Anglia.

910kg/m3

Inky black to very dark brown and with a significantly higher density and hardness than ordinary oak, bog oak was created when prehistoric forests were submerged under water and silt in anaerobic conditions thousands of years ago.

Fiendishly hard to take through the drying process but reliable and stable when done. A handsome dark and dense timber for guitar building producing good quality instruments.

When carbon dated, bog oak from this source was found to be 5300 years old.

Classical guitar 200 x 35 x 13mm
Western guitar 180 x 45 x 13mm

AAA Quarter sawn wood or nearly so.

AA Wood that is quartered to one edge, (where the centre joint of the back will be ), gradually straying from the quarter ending up slab sawn at the opposite edge.

A Wood that is slab sawn, the main slab sawn area being approximately half way across the board.

* - One or more asterisks may be added to the grade mark to indicate wood that is aesthetically more pleasing or desirable by virtue of colour, intensity of figure or fineness of grain.
