    Okay so I am completly out of the building world right now and just want to focus on playing again. so I want to clear out my extra bedroom. I have 15 alder one piece body blanks, these were bought from a supplier that provides body blanks to some of the high name USA guitar manufacterers. Looking for what I paid 65 plus shipping per body blank.

    I am going to open up a different ad for the maple to keep it organized.

    I also have a few black walnut blanks left, the tree was cut down 4 years ago and these probably need a little more drying for a month or so, they are air dried and were just cut. looking for 100 a blank for these plus shipping.

    Thanks

    Hey guys I don't want to be a pig no worries. :D I would only want one or 2 but 21" doesn't work for most of my body shapes.

    Sorry I am still not back yet, pics up tomorrow night. But my fiancé was able to track down one board its a ribbon sapele board 20" x 15" wide x 2" thick, the picture looks like it has discoloration but it appears to just be on the surface, this particular board been drying for a long time, will need planned to get perfectly flat. Looking for what I paid for it 65 plus shipping.. The alder and maple pics will be up soon sorry about the delay.

    Good and bad news: bad news- only was able to find 5 right now, good news-they are much larger than I remember

    Just posting pics right now, they are really close to dead level, they have been air drying for years and the guy I bought them from is one of the best around for drying, the ends were sealed so there is no cracks or checking, the boards all measure roughly 23" long x 16+" wide and 2" thick... They still have live edge on one side but I can clean that up if needed don't know why it would be though since you are cutting out a body shape. They are all relatively clear, the guy I bought them from sold a majority of the rest to a major guitar builder who also sells these similar blanks for 100+...

    They are all pretty dang close to dead flat although running through a planner might not hurt, they have been sitting for a couple years, there are no cracks, the dark streaks in the one are just color difference in the grain.

    65 plus shipping on each board.
