Dalbergia tucurensis (Panama Rosewood) is a true rosewood from equatorial America. This species is also known as Yucatan Rosewood or Nicaraguan Rosewood. This is a little known species that is used for fancy boxes, marimbas, guitars, ukuleles, and other high-end applications. The wood has a bright ringing tap tone with good sustain. It works easily and has iridescent shimmer in quartersawn stock. Colors are usually even brown with a hint of red or dark stripes in some boards. There is a very limited supply available.
