Some really beautiful wood in stock!
April 16, 2010

This gorgeous material just arrived, from the 'top-shelf' stash of one of our best wood suppliers:

 

Pommele Sapele

 This "Pommelle" Sapele has some of the most striking and 3-D figure you'll find anywhere, particularly in a mahogany-type wood.  Even dry, with no finish, this wood is just incredible.

 

 Beyond the beautiful figure, it is a wonderful acoustic material - it rings with a nice, crisp tone when tapped, and should sound very similar to the top-grade mahogany we normally use.

 

 

These sets are sized for Acoustic Gryphons, and there are only a couple available.

 

Macassar Ebony

This Macassar Ebony has some really dramatic color variations, which look great as a bookmatched back.

 

Of course, we have matching sides with very attractive striping.  Paired up with some koa or other light brown binding, these sets will look extremely striking.

 

 

We can't be sure when (or if!) we'll get more of this material, so call soon if you're interested in a Gryphon built with this spectacular and rare wood!
