Brasilian Rosewood and Spruce

It is almost impossible to accurately render a dark Brasilian rosewood with modern cameras and computer monitors. The main image above has been considerably lightened to bring out detail in the grain of this beautiful wood. In reality it is considerably darker than this. The inset image in the bottom right corner shows what is perhaps a more accurate rendering in terms of brightness, but the detail in grain detail is lost, even with modern electronic displays. One must really see the guitar in person to apprecieate the beauty of this Brasilian rosewood instrument.
