Our friends in Peru have found another spectacular tonewood to add to our eco-friendly offerings. The allure of this wood is obvious – striking, sharp stripe patterns and rich gold color. What might not be apparent in the photo (but will show through dramatically under finish) is a uniquely three dimensional ribbon texture in the grain. The wood is porous but rigid. All sets are well-sawn and the figure is strong on everything we’ve received. Tonally, expect a clear, rich tone with the punchiness of good Mahogany.
