GUITAR WOODS: PADUAK


Guitar woods paduak

Paduak (Pterocarpus Soiauxii) grows in western Africa. The tree grows to a maximum height of 30mt with a 0.6 to 1 mt diameter. Weights are pretty heavy reaching about 640/800kg/mt3 and degrade only a bit when seasoned.

Paduak is a highly stable wood and for this reason was, and is, still widely used for manufacturing laminated necks for neck through basses, and it's also seen used for fretboards. Just cut, it displays a largely brownish colour that, due to oxidation, in a few days will become a wonderful shiny orange.
