Testimonials

“You guys are the best. I just received my order and literally every time i describe my specifications on how the fretboards should look you guys deliver 10/10. the two long scale indian rosewood fingerboards looks simply spectacular and the ziricote is glorious. I usually dont take the time to write these but this time I had to. Thanks for years of wonderful service guys. And if you can find the guys who helped pick my recent boards, make sure to personally tell them how happy I am."

Brazilian Tigerwood

Astronium graveolens

Brazilian Tigerwood, also known as Goncalo Alves, is a wood that comes mainly from Brazil. It has been growing in popularity among builders who favor bold, contrasting figure on the back and sides. The color is an attractive honey-tan with broad reddish brown stripes which often paint dramatic, symmetrical shapes across the bookmatched guitar back. Although it is lightweight, it is only slightly porous and finishes nicely. Some say the tone is similar to Mahogany.
