perfectly quartersawn neck blank from African Rosewood (Guibourtia coleosperma)
medium density but very close grained, good to work,
responsibly forested and not endangered.
but very rare to see in quartersawn and guitar quality.
26mm thick 110mm wide 815mm long
Blank is shown on both sides, there is a small dark streak bottom right in the photo but it appears to go in less than 5mm and must be outside the finished area.
