Brasilian Rosewood
and Koa


Side view of Brasilian rosewood guitar

From time to time, I build a guitar from my limited stock of old Brasilian rosewood. The sound board is Englemann spruce and it features a fine, handcrafted rosette of spalted oak.

Normally, I would bind an instrument like this with Brasilian rosewood. However, to give this instrument a unique look I've used some flamed Koa for the binding.

In terms of sound, this guitar has a solid, singing treble and a big, fat sustained bass.

This exquisite instrument is no longer available for purchase; please check back here frequently as we'll be featuring another guitar soon.
