Very old figured mahogany guitar back and sides set western size.

Swietenia macrophylla from Central America.

600kg/m3

Photo is of actual set.

These four sets have been cut from very old stock Honduras mahogany that is thought to be more than 100 years old by the evidence of the milling techniques present on the board.

There was just one board in this cache of old mahogany with this intensity of figure in it. The rest was old cuban mahogany of a similar vintage.

This is of course unrepeatable.

 

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.

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.
