Testimonials

“I recently purchased a beautiful fingerboard from you and now I am thinking of grabbing fretwire from you as well. Unfortunately I'm cheap and lazy and find myself here asking if it is possible to pay more to have your fretwire radiused before it is sent? You guys would be the coolest ever. No matter what the outcome, I will be sending more business your way from here in Maine. Hoping for good news! Thank you!"

Sapele, figured

BSfiguredSapeleGENERICEntandrophragma cylindricum

Sapele is a little heavier and a good alternative to Honduran Mahogany but finer textured. A fine guitar wood due to the relative low cost, ease of working, and stability. Bending success is improved if less water is used. Colors range from light pink to medium brown to reddish brown. The figure on well-quartered pieces is the characteristic stripe resulting from interlocked grain.

Although any figured wood presents some difficulties when bending, this wood is not significantly problematic and no unusual problems have been reported. We have only a very few sets of this stunning wood available.
