One of the rarest, most sought after rosewoods in the World, Brazilian Rosewood is renowned for its acoustic properties and elegant, colorfully patterned grain. Planer skip or sander skip may be present. These pieces are hand sanded. Brazilian Rosewood works and glues well. This is very old material that is bone dry. This piece of lumber has some nice sapwod contrast! There is a partial live edge. It has some pin holes in the sapwood. There are a few 1-1/4" checks on the sapwood area up to 14" long. The heartwood has a few 1/4" deep checks. Please see pictures for reference. Could get a Jumbo Guitar back from the piece. Must be able to work with!
