Mahogany is an excellent material and is widely used for the bodies and necks of electric guitars. It is a strong, stable and acoustically sound timber.

Mahogany from South America has been a favourite timber of Gibson guitars for many decades, however as South American Mahogany has now been added to the CITES list of threatened species it is now not commercially available. Khaya Mahogany is the closest substitute we have come across in terms of look, sound, weight and machining.

Quality - Our African Mahogany blanks have straight grain with an even golden brown colour. Mahogany can come from many places throughout the world. However, traditionally Brazilian or Cuban Mahogany has become very hard to obtain in a good quality, African Mahogany has many of the same attributes as the South American wood.

Look - Mahogany is a rich brown/gold colour. The Khaya Mahogany which we sell is much closer in look to South American Mahogany than the the other African Mahogany also known as Sapele Mahogany. The grain, which has a reasonably average spacing, is very dark brown almost black. This grain is particularly open and will require filling before finishing.

Price - African mahogany is a medium priced timber.

Availability/Renewability - African Mahogany is still widely available.
