Basswood Body Blank

Basswood electric guitar body blank.

Basswood is a colorless wood which is very easy to work with. It is native to Europe, Asia and North America. As a tonewood it is used for guitar bodies only. Basswood has excellent mid range tones and has a very warm and pronounced sound with very good sustain. Because of it's "growl" it is very suited for Rock and Metal. It is the best wood choice for Floyd Rose equipped guitars as the tremolo tends to be very tinny sounding with other woods due to it's minimal contact with the guitar body. The tonal properties of basswood eliminate that problem. Since the beginning of the 21st Century basswood has become the tonewood of choice for many international brands and has become the hallmark of the "Rock guitar."
Visually it has no grain so is not used for natural finishes. It is quite soft and can dent more easily than other tone woods.

Each blank is kiln dried and sanded to 120 grit. End grain has been sealed to prevent splitting.

Minimum Dimensions: 20"x14"x1.75"
