Honduras mahogany Mandolin back and sides set grade AAA*.

Swietenia macrophylla from Central and South America.

Honduras mahogany is CITES listed and requires special licences for export. We regret that for practical reasons we are not able to supply this item outside the UK.


Photo is of a typical set.

This is the authentic mahogany that has been used as a tonewood for a very long time. It’s tricky to source at the moment but we think well worth the effort.

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.

Back and sides sets are pre matched for colour and character.

Back and sides sets frequently are different grades for the back and the sides e.g. AAA sides and AA back. The valuation of these sets assumes the back and the sides each represent 50% of the value of a set and are then added together.
