B/S Ishpingo, dreadnought

$101.12

Amburana cearensis

Ishpingo is a stunning wood from Peru that is virtually unknown in the lutherie community, but passed all our tests for stability - and it bent easily, despite its dramatic grain. Most importantly, it is light weight and has a round, present tap tone that, while similar to Mahogany, exceeds it in volume, crispness, and complexity. All sets feature deep, three-dimensional ribbon figure. The color lands somewhere between gold and light amber. It is porous but treated with the proper fillers (try our new Chemcraft fillers) and a high gloss finish you can expect a surface of great depth and chatoyance. The icing on the cake with this fine wood is that is harvested with great care for the species, its environment, and the Peruvian communities that helped bring it to market.

    We bend classical sides 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.

Have us install your backstrip. You must have chosen a backstrip and asked us to join your back in the previous selections. We sandwich the backstrip in between the back plates rather than rout and inlay. 

If there is not a choice here it is because we are unable to insert a backstrip. This is typically because you have chosen a 3-piece back.

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 and side set you are purchasing.

B/S Ishpingo, dreadnought

Amburana cearensis

Ishpingo is a stunning wood from Peru that is virtually unknown in the lutherie community, but passed all our tests for stability - and it bent easily, despite its dramatic grain. Most importantly, it is light weight and has a round, present tap tone that, while similar to Mahogany, exceeds it in volume, crispness, and complexity. All sets feature deep, three-dimensional ribbon figure. The color lands somewhere between gold and light amber. It is porous but treated with the proper fillers (try our new Chemcraft fillers) and a high gloss finish you can expect a surface of great depth and chatoyance. The icing on the cake with this fine wood is that is harvested with great care for the species, its environment, and the Peruvian communities that helped bring it to market.
