Tasmanian Native Timbers are proud to be suppliers of high quality Tasmanian musical instrument grade timber.
Our Instrument Grade blanks are Quarter sawn, with no defects and have a log sealer applied to the end grain to avoid splitting during the drying process. They have proved popular with luthiers.
Generally always in stock are Blackwood solid guitar bodies and necks in the following sizes:
- Solid body pieces measure approx.: 570mm long 225mm wide and 50mm thick
- Neck pieces measure approx.: 865mm long 125mm wide and 50mm thick.
We try and stock a few random lengths of 325mm wide Blackwood 55mm thick that is kiln dried, quarter sawn and rough sawn. A special order of 400mm wide Blackwood boards x 55mm thick in random lengths has been supplied to a client for musical instruments.
Blackheart Sassafras was sold to an Ipswich (QLD) client to make a carved guitar, King Billy Pine was sold to a Wollongong Client to make musical instruments.
Clients have purchased Blackwood for cigar box guitar necks.
Items can be picked up from Elizabeth Town, Tasmania or Freight can be arranged Australia wide.
