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."

Indian Laurel

Terminalia tomentosa

Indian Laurel lives in the shadow of India's main tonewood export, Indian Rosewood, but should not be overlooked. Denser than most Rosewoods, it has surprising sonic potential. The wood is quite attractive, though don't expect as much variation set-to-set as you find with Indian Rosewood. A robust, even, brown color is augmented by lightly variegated dark lines and very subtle cross-grain figure. Side bending is somewhat more challenging, as you would expect from a dense wood, but we have not had problems in our shop. Indian Laurel finishes machines and glues well.

Many of these sets have very small fissures (see photo) which can be filled with epoxy and wood dust. They should not present any significant problems.
