Testimonials

"Just received my latest classical guitar kit. I had a couple of requests for wood selection, and you did a great job in selecting on both counts,
In addition, all the wood was great quality - this was an expensive kit, but your product made it a very good value to me.

Thanks for the great work!"

Honduran Mahogany Neck Blanks

NECKSblankMahoganyHonduran300Swietenia macrophylla

Honduran Mahogany has been the preferred wood for steel string guitar necks for many years. It is now listed on CITES Appendix II. Due to its scarcity, finding quality, quartersawn stock has grown more difficult. Trees are smaller, resulting in far less quartersawn material and/or material that is quartersawn running to off-quarter or flatsawn. In order to be completely transparent about the product you are receiving, we have modified the way we are grading our Mahogany.

  • Premium grade mahogany necks are straight-grained, quartersawn with a 10° variance off quarter allowed. ** (See figure 1)

  • First grade mahogany necks are straight-grained, quartersawn with a 25° variance off quarter allowed. ** (See figure 2)

  • Second grade mahogany necks may have one of the following: small knots or pinholes that will not effect the integrity of the neck, off quarter as much as 50% (45°) or the grain will not be perfectly straight or there might be unevenness of color.

**Note: The longer a neck blank is, the more difficult it becomes to maintain straight grain along the entire piece. We attempt to maintain straight grain along our 35 inch necks for at least 24 inches after which the grain may veer slightly off the board.

Honduran Mahogany is shipped in U.S. only
Due to the CITES export restrictions on Honduran Mahogany, we are unable to ship this wood outside of the United States. See CITES website.

• Parts for added heels and heel blocks can be found under Various Heel Blocks.
