Backs only (no sides) Bloodwood, striped, dreadnought

$66.95

Brosimum rubescens

Unlike other red-hued woods, bloodwood is not very photosensitive, so it tends to retain its reddish 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 so it is well suited for fingerboards, bridge blanks, and backs and sides. David Segal of New York Bass Works says it's "Very hard, rings like a bell, is quartersawn and likely more stable than Ebony. This should become my fretless fingerboard wood of choice!".

If you have elected to have us join your back, you may also wish to have us profile it. We will profile your back to the shape you choose leaving approximately 1/4 inch of extra material beyond the outline. This excess material can be removed later, once your box is complete, using a router with a flush trim bit or by other appropriate means. These options are filtered to work with the back set you are purchasing.

  • Profile joined back to classical shape based on our PL42/PL64 plan (ref: SVPBC)

    We profile to the 1966 Ramirez plan (plan SKU PL28, template SKU SPT1). This is very close to both the '37 Hauser plan (plan SKU PL64, template SKU SPT14)  and the '43/'48 Hauser plan (plan SKU PL40, template SKU SPT2)(they are both slightly smaller but very close) so this customization will work for all three.
