Machiche is an excellent hardwood with deep browns, brick reds, and fine grain patterns. This makes the wood look somewhat like old growth Honduras Rosewood. Though it is hard, the wood machines fairly easily, responding well to sharp cutters and also finishes well, bringing out beautiful highlights in the grain. Good sustain and crisp projection make this Central American hardwood a good choice for acoustical properties as well as dollar value. Kiln dried and ready to use! This is great for 2 foot lengths, or shorter, due to the 1/2" bow. Possibly use includes guitar sides or ukuleles.
