If it is listed below it is AVAILABLE, but this is an ever changing situation as instruments are ordered and built. If you see something that appeals to you for an instrument let us know as soon as possible before it is consigned to another project!! You can also refer to our body styles page for other information.The material is shown in two sections below:

1) Woods we currently have in stock
2) Woods that we obtain on short notice for your project

Woods in Stock Black & White Ebony (otherwise known as Pale Moon Ebony)

This is a truly amazing piece of Black & White Ebony which we picked up recently. There is enough wood in this billet for two bass guitars. It will finish very well and look eye catching and very unusual on any instrument so get your order in soon!.

Black & White Ebony is considered to be a rare find, especially in larger billets, and is one of the more expensive timbers on the commercial market. This wood has a fine texture with mostly straight grain and is a rare and unusual species of the ebony family.
  Figured Purpleheart

Purpleheart is a beautiful iridescent wood under any conditions, but in this case we were lucky enough to find some FIGURED Purpleheart which is much less common. This material will be used to create a couple of very eye-catching instruments in 2008. Purpleheart is a great rigid and stable wood for basses and guitars.
