Honduras Rosewood

: 1
27 lbs. 41-3/16″ x 7-15/16″ x 2″
Very rare on the World Market, this Rosewood cannot ship outside of the USA. As is true of Rosewoods, this species has excellent acoustic properties with well balanced highs & lows. Honduras Rosewood is favored for Marimba bars. Colors range from light violets to light reds. Honduras Rosewood works well and finishes to a high natural polish. For a period of time, it was considered the only suitable Brazilian Rosewood substitute.

Beautiful violets with dark streaks. Few surface checks on numbered face. 12" end check opposite end of numbers on same edge. Has 1/4" deep check. Couple of checks on edge grain. Opposite face of numbers has full length check near center. Bark incursion on edge at end. Suitable for bridge blanks, finger boards, Ukulele parts, flat sawn. Amazing color! As IS. Not suitable for acoustic guitar back or sides. Base or electric okay!
