Sassafras single piece body blank.
Sassafras albidum from USA
Photo is of a typical piece.
With the reduced availability of Swamp ash another very light weight guitar body wood with easy working properties needed to be found. Sassafras has the 'ring porous' structure of swamp ash and a low density of around 500kg/m3 making it the ideal next step for this style of instrument.We hope that the availability of swamp ash will improve over time but we are advised that will probably not.
Type 'A' 500 x 340 x 45mmType 'B' 500 x 340 x 38mm
