    I haven't tried it what do you think of it? Compare it to other woods. Is it sort of like Black limba and Hondo Mahogany?

    I've done one body with it so far, and really liked how the wood worked. weight was well within the envelope I like to work within. I am definitely going to use it on future builds

    if you want to see it in production basses, I believe Roscoe would be a good reference for you to check out

    all the best,

    more like very light hondo mahog. than limba
    almost like redwood x with mahog
    nice light stuff
  4. Spanish Cedar is the Roscoe wood of choice. I've never played a Spanish Ceder bodied bass (I love Swamp Ash), but if Keith Roscoe uses it, it's GOT to be killer!

    Dust is pretty fine, tastes awful and always makes it into your mouth. Can be very low density, this stuff dents very easily and is so soft it is a PIA to sand.

    I decide to stop using it every time I use it.
