“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."

Ziricote

SUPPLY-CHAIN UPDATE:
Most of the exotic woods coming from Mexico (Cocobolo, Palo Escrito, Ziricote) are now strictly regulated by the Mexican government. More importantly, there is strong evidence that nearly all of what we see entering the United States now are poached and/or illegally exported. We have examined supply chain paperwork from several new importers claiming a "clean paper-trail" and have found them to be deeply suspicious. For this reason, we are culling through our remaining stocks of these woods and offering them here for sale, even when the match between back and sides are far from perfect. Each set is pictured individually for your evaluation, so you can be the judge!

Ziricote is most striking in appearance, similar to Brazilian Rosewood but in shades of greys and olive greens with black rather than reds with black. Heavier than most Rosewoods, it works somewhat like Ebony, and tends to be brittle, but what it lacks in workability it more than makes up for in tonality. It is used by Goodall Guitars and Breedlove Guitars for some of their finest models and has been used by a number of discriminating classical and steel string builders such as Mark Blanchard, Michael Bashkin and Gerald Sheppard.
