Hello! My first-ever order arrived today. I had ordered some wood items and they are GORGEOUS! Smooth, perfectly flat!, and the woods themselves - with each one I pulled out, I just kept saying, WOW!, *WOW*!!!, over and over.  And thank you so much for the beautiful piece of East Indian Rosewood - it was described as "2nd grade" I believe, and I asked for a reddish color if possible, and I think this piece is absolutely stunning! These really exceeded my expectations! Thank you!"

Katalox (pronounced "cat-ah-losh") is a dense, hard Central American wood that is similar to Ebony. The color is dark brown to nearly black with subtle red/purple highlights. Martin Guitar has used Katalox fingerboards on several of their guitar models. With a bit of oil, we feel that this wood would be very difficult to differentiate from Ebony.
