Bloodwood Bridge Blank
Bloodwood is a bolder red color then either Paduak or Bois d' Rose, but has the advantage of not oxidizing to a warmer color over time. For this reason it is often used as decorative binding and inlay by luthiers and furniture makers alike. It is remarkably dense (about as dense as the harder rosewoods such as Honduran and Brazilian) so it is well suited for fingerboards, bridge blanks and backs and sides -all of which are now available from LMI (we also have woodstrips, binding and headplates made from Bloodwood!).
Bloodwood bridge blanks meet the for both steel string and classical bridges.
