Padauk Back and Sides Set (Patterned For a Dreadnought)
Padauk is a very nice red colored wood that will darken somewhat over time especially if exposed to sunlight. It is a dense wood that has an excellent taptone and should impart a great tone to your guitar. It is a good Rosewood substitute. Try it for yourself and see what you think.

This set is has some cupping and some stable defects in the back set.
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.
