Sapele is an excellent tonewood and is also a great Mahogany substitute; giving a rich, woody tone. Quartersawn sets will usually have a nice ribbon figured pattern. Several high-end guitar manufacturers are using it with great results. This set is dry and ready to use. I recommend letting it acclimate to your shop conditions first.
These measurements are my minimum tolerance so the wood you get could, but not always, be on the larger side. If you need specific measurements, that will need to be worked out before shipping. Not all sets are sanded, therefore, there will be some saw marks from the milling process. Additional sanding will need to be done by the buyer.
