Brazilian Cherry (CS)


Botanical Name: Hymenaea courbaril

 Also known as Jatoba, it is very similar to Ovangkol in its appearance, but generally has a more pronounced figure.  Between Maple and Rosewood in its hardness & density, as it is tonally.The wood is an attractive burgundy, deep red, or orange tone, and some of it can even have dark black stripes highlighting a strong visible grain pattern. It can exhibit quite a large color variation from one board to the next. The heartwood varies in color from a salmon red to an orange brown when it is freshly cut which darkens to a red brown when seasoned. The sapwood can be wide and is much lighter in color - either white or pink and sometimes gray and does not darken to the deep red-orange tones common with the heart wood. It is not as porous as mahogany but harder and denser. Brazilian wood has a natural luster, with a medium to coarse texture. It has no obvious taste or odor. 

Fabulous looking guitars with this one!
