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."

Malaysian Blackwood

 

 

Diospyros ebonasea
 
Malaysian Blackwood is a premium tonewood that is well suited for all sorts of guitars. It has become a favorite of several well known high-end luthiers and it's popularity is growing. Denser than most Rosewoods, the sustaining, glassy tap tone draws comparisons to African Blackwood. It is slightly less brittle though, and unlike African Blackwood, most sets have attractive dark streaks (also, African Blackwood is a true Rosewood, Malaysian Blackwood is not). The overall coloring is similar to Ziricote, with black and dark gray colors highlighted by subtle reddish brown and/or green hues.
