Botanical Name:Tilia Americana
Density:ca. 415 kg/m³
It is one of the lightest timber to the manufacture bodies. The color is white, but often has nasty green mineral streaks. This is a close-grained wood, but can absorb a large amount of finishing. Not a good wood for clear finishes since there is little figure.
As for the sound, Basswood has a nice warm tone with good mids. This wood was used in the 80s by big brands.
Tilia Americana doesn't appear on the list Cites, so it doesn't need certification any kind.
