Link To Page To Buy Wood For Bass/Guitar Bodies

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by B'Aces High, Jun 18, 2004.


  1. I remember seeing a link a few times where you can buy all sorts of exotic woods for bodies of instruments. I dont remember the name of the site or anything.
    I have a friend who wants to build a guitar and he is looking around for places to get wood.

    TIA

    This site whoops ass, IMO......... www.woodfinder.net ...just plug in the specie and your buying level, (e.g., wholesale, retail, etc), and they give you many website choices.

    FWIW - My own personal preference for many woods is www.gilmerwood.com .............friggin INCREDIBLE stuff if you have a wallet!!!
