Lacewood guitar back and sides set western size grade AAA*

Platanus Hybrida from London


Photo is of actual set.

An interesting option for those who prefer to use home grown timbers. Creamy white in colour with a distinct medulary ray figure in brown. A similar density to sycamore therefore implying a similar warm sound to the instrument.

Apparently sourced from opposite the Rolls Royce garage in Berkeley square London W1 should timber sourcing be important to you.

Full Western size.

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.
