Swietenia mahagoni

Those who treasure Mahogany as a back and side wood find more of what they are looking for in Cuban Mahogany. Unlike Khaya and Sapele, Cuban (Swietenia mahagoni) is a close cousin to the so-called 'Genuine' Honduran Mahogany which is a staple in guitar making. Slightly more dense and less porous, builders and musicians find fuller mids and more prounounced low end tones with Cuban Mahogany. Cosmetically, it is similar to Honduran with the notable addition of beautiful, tight flame figure in the material we are selling now. Supplies are limited and we see no more material on the horizon right now, so if you are interested in this rare and coveted wood you had better act fast!
