Just wondering if anyone knows where I could get some over here in Aus?
Go to a lumber/hardwood/floor store. It's called Doussié by people in the trade.
It's heavy, dense, and contains silicone and some minerals that can react with lacquer, forming marks/patches, sot an oil finish might be more appropriate
Hmm, any other woods with very similar properties then?
You can use it, just that it's a bit harder to finish with laquer or paint, but it takes oil nicely. It's hard enough so that even an oil finish will do - and oil finish is beautiful and easy.
Doussié should be available in bigger lumber/floor stores
What properties are you looking for?
Looking to use it as a neck or as a body wood?
