Very nice
Review by  Lanndon B. from Carlsbad, NM
Great pieces of wood. I didn't expect much from Alder, having limited experience with it in the past and I originally intended to cover them with a prettier veneer. But once I got the blanks and looked at the pretty grain figure, I decided to use them as is. No complaints and it was a great decision!

Scrap wood
Review by  Ray from Buffalo, Ny
Ordered 12 bf and when I opened it up it had 5 knots throughout the 2 pieces I was sent. I ordered so I could build a few guitar bodies and will be lucky to get 1&1/2 out of what I was sent. Emailed and called and had to leave a message and no response from customer service.

Awesome Service
Review by  Darin L Rhinehart from Greenwood, IN USA
As a custom guitar builder I am accustomed to using only the best materials for my customers. The Alder that I received was hands down some of the nicest that I have used , not only that but the customer service was extraordinary! One more thing that I was impressed with was the shipping and the correspondence letting me know who what where and when. Top notch! Thanks Again Darin L Rhinehart President Rhinehart Guitars LLC
