could anyone tell me how much a piece of mahogony or maple (big enough for a guitar body ) would cost me in the uk?
and also where would be the best place to get it.


i'm sorry if theres already been a thread about this.

thanks

Go to your local wood store.. we have mark leaders up where i am.. and enquire about prices etc

does anyone know if places like b&q or other large diy chains sell these woods, ( at a reasonable price i mean ), i'm probably going to get mahogany, also could anyone tell me how much they paid for thier wood for thier own custom build?

thanks

B&q probably sell it, but it'd cost you more than going to somewhere not as big.. and knowing b&q if you wanted a specific piece ordering in they'd probably charge you for it there

A great place. Haven't ordered from there yet, but spoken to the owner on the phone about a problem I had. Really helpful guy.

The site gives the most common woods he gets asked for and the range in price for a 'normal' size and quality bit, though he can get the bit to suit your price range and needs.

For example, I asked if he had bubinga, (it wasn't listed) and he said he had a load, and could get enough for my needs, from £60-100 depending on how figured the wood was. They do have about every wood I've ever heard of and more, and if they don't have it, he said he could get some in anyway, thhough it may be a bit expensive.

Great site.
