Testimonials

"....My friend and I have been building guitars in my high school woodworking class over the course of this school year. This will be the last order we place for this project, and I wanted to say that we have found your website, products, and customer service to be extremely useful. When my friend encountered some issues with bending the sides he purchased, he emailed your company to ask for advice, and, very quickly, received very helpful advice."

Primavera

BSPrimaveraWPRIM500
Cybistax donnellsmithii
 

This tonewood has been widely used as a solidbody wood, but is now making inroads as a compelling and environmentally friendly back and side wood - with a very low price tag. Visually, it is reminiscent of some Ash and Oak, with a golden blonde color and gray-brown streaks. The grain structure is similar to Mahogany, roey and with some subtle ribbon figure seen here and there. It is substantially lighter in weight than Mahogany, but it is has a surprisingly deep and responsive tap tone. The light color makes it a good candidate for some creative dye work.
