Rosewood – Brazilian
lovely board with cracks and a few holes.
With its outstanding strength-to-weight ratio, density, stability and resonance, it is easy to see why Brazilian Rosewood became the wood synonymous with "rosewood" in the world of both acoustic and electric guitar building, in the last century. It is also renowned for its use in fine furniture, cabinetry, as veneer and paneling, and more. Its wide popularity and huge demand led to its eventual placement on CITES Appendix I, back in early 1992. Not only is it illegal to import or export the wood from one country to another, but it is also illegal export finished products containing the legendary Dalbergia.The wood is typically a dark chocolate brown, although it can possess varying degrees of reddish or purplish tint, as well as having a variety of secondary colors sometimes woven in to its grains. Grain patterns can run the gamut -- from straight, to interlocked, wavy or irregular -- with a medium texture that can be quite porous. Brazilian Rosewood is generally considered a cooperative working wood, although its density requires sharp tools and blades. It finishes well and has a nice natural luster, although -- with its high natural oil content -- it can be difficult to glue.
