Padauk

BSPadaukRenatoBellucciWPADJ

Padauk guitar by Renato Bellucci.

Pterocarpus soyauxii

Padauk is a bright orange or almost crimson wood when freshly cut, but oxidizes to a darker, rich purple-brown over time - although it stays redder than Indian Rosewood. Slightly harder and heavier than Indian Rosewood it is a good back and side wood in all respects - stable, easy to work, with a strong tone. It may be a little difficult to bend compared to the ease of bending of some of the more pliable woods.
