Griffin Exotic Wood

Brazilian Rosewood
(dalbergia nigra)

Brazilian Rosewood has been used for a long time as the wood of choice for guitar backs.  Due to intensive harvesting for many decades, the Brazilian government and international treaty banned export of this wood in 1991, in order to allow the remaining forests to recover.  The wood below comes from the stumps of the trees cut before 1991, which is legal for export.  We were able to buy this old stock offered below.  Color varies from very dark to very light.   This is not figured wood, but the grain is straight or very slightly wavy.   We are not allowed to ship this wood outside the USA.

unless specified otherwise.

This is real Brazilian rosewood, Dalbergia nigra. It has been banned for import since the early 1990's. This is not the stump wood that came in about 10 years ago, this is the actual wood from before the ban from the trunk of the tree rather then from the stump (nothing wrong with stump wood though!)
