    I ordered a stick about a month ago and they just called and told me that the wood I had ordered (Padauk) was not available. They said that the wood that they would replace it was the same thing it as padauk, but called sateen, which is completely different. Did I just misunderstand her, and is there a wood that is similar to padauk

    It looks very similar (it's satine, or bloodwood). A little bit brighter red. Probably about the same weight too.

    I don't think the wood makes much difference in the sound on a Stick, so I wouldn't sweat it too much.

    Thanks a lot, all I was looking for was the color
