It's not that uncommon a wood. My local hardwood supplier always has a decent stock. If you're in or near CT or Mass, Downes & Reader is a good source for most of the woods used in guitars including exotics. I get thick veneer for body laminations from Certainly Wood in Western NY. I've also sourced wood off ebay but shipping can get pricey.

I got the hunk of purpleheart for Wolfish from Exotic Woods in NJ.
