Also known as Ciricote, this rare species is only found in a small portion of Central America on the Caribbean coast. Trees are commonly 15-20" in diameter with heights of 45-75'. The tree produces an edible fruit and beautiful orange yellow flowers.  The wood is prized locally and is used for carvings, furniture, and handles for knives. It is denser than Rosewoods at .95 density. It is a little brittle but has a crisp, bright tone when used in instruments. Beautiful spider-webbing is reminiscent of Brazilian Rosewood. Patterns like valleys, plateaus, & mountains make a stunning landscape figure. Our Ziricote is imported in log form so that we can control the conversion of the wood in our sawmill. It turns to an extremely high glass-like polish.  Kiln dried and ready to use!  Ziricote is becoming increasingly scarce and difficult to obtain in large usable sizes for instruments.  W23390: Special Grade Acoustic back and side set. Kiln dried. Fits a small classical guitar or large parlor guitar.  Back has been surface sanded on both sides. Sides will need surfacing. Both have great figure. One of a kind instrument set.
