Sassafras three piece body blank.

Sassafras albidum from USA

Photo is of actual 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.

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

Type 'A' 500 x 340 x 45mm
Type 'B' 500 x 340 x 38mm

Type 'A' blanks are thick enough for bodies without a decorative top piece or with a 'drop top' piece.

Type 'B' blanks are for use with les paul style contoured top blanks.

Available as 1pc slabs or as a set of 2 or 3 narrower pieces for gluing up to the final size.
