Depending on how the leaves are grouped, I'm suspecting Chinaberry- also called, 'White Cedar'.
btw- if it is Chinaberry (the trunk(s) in the background definitely are) you'll have better luck with that for a slingy than you would with that Eucalyptus fork. Chinaberry is a somewhat soft wood but if you can get a fork of heartwood then you will probably be okay.
If I could see a picture of the entire tree, I could easily tell you if it's Chinaberry. If it is, you'll see the fruit all over the tree and on the ground. It is a member of the mahogany family and the wood resembles teak. As far as landscaping, the tree is often considered a trashy tree and is very messy, but the timber is of high quality and doesn't crack or split like many other woods when drying. It would be well worth the time to harvest some.
I've made ss with it already but there is no fruit, there is never a main truck, but very scattered
Also how did u stain your guitar, what with?
It's not my guitar, but chinaberry wood can actually look like this without a stain. This one is heavily lacquered or polyurethaned.
