Granadillo

BSGranadilloWGRENJ700Platymiscium yucatanum

Granadillo is a relatively new wood to American guitar making but is fairly common in South America. It is non-porous, straight grained, very dense, and has a ringing, bright tap tone. It works easily but can dull tools a bit, has a medium to fine texture, and finishes well. The reddish brown color will darken to a brick color over time much like Honduran rosewood. It is sure to become popular for steel string guitars.

On occasion we may downgrade a Granadillo set to second grade for any of the following reasons: slabsawn, unevenness of color and/or figure, small, solid pin-knots. These second grade sets make fine sounding instruments with great character at a great price.
See an example of a  2nd grade set.
