*The body wood I received in a trade with a couple of ancient gentlemen who were restoring a mighty Wurlitzer organ. They didn’t know what it was, claimed it had been in a shed for 80 years or so. It’s a pale yellow wood, interlocked grain, quartersawn and clearly from a very large tree. looks and works like Honduras Mahogany except for the the color and perhaps a little bit lighter in weight. Quite stiff for the weight, perhaps due to its age. Has a nice deep ring when struck or tapped. Enough for only 2 guitars.
