Looking for an cost-effective alternative to mahogany? Try african mahogany wood.
African mahogany, also called khaya or acajou, is an african wood that has become popular in the last few decades. It is called so because of its visual and mechanical properties resemblance to American mahogany. Its use has become so widespread that we can find models of all major brands where this wood is used to replace its South American counterpart. Its availability and economic price make it a perfect choice for those who are starting in luthiery. The reason is clear: it is difficult to get more for the price.
African mahogany can range in color from pale pink to orange or light brown. It works well, regardless of whether we are talking about sawing, planing, gluing, staining, etc., although sometimes it's hard to sand due to its interlocked grain. It has a very open pore, which makes it essential to use a filler.
Its resistance and lightness make this wood a perfect candidate for classical guitar necks. It is not uncommon to see necks made of african mahogany on mid-range and even high-end guitars of many brands.
