Photo is of a typical piece.

African Padauk is a resonant and naturally stable wood a little less dense than Indian rosewood. It is brick red when fresh cut maturing in time to a dark red brown. The large pores in the wood require special attention when grain filling if a high gloss finish is desired. Like all good tone woods, padauk boards sing to us as we move them around in the warehouse.

The sizes listed below are typical for our electric guitar tops. There can be variations. Please tell us the length and width of the guitar you want to make and we will select the most suitable blank for your purposes.
