Thread Name: Is this Brazillian Rosewood guitar?
Subject: RE: Is this Brazillian Rosewood guitar?
Newly made Brazilian Rosewood guitars are very rare these days, and that's for sure, but a luthier friend of mine in Orillia made one last year...after sourcing enough Brazilian Rosewood to make at least one set of guitar back and sides...and it sounds very, very good. The wood is extremely dark in color, much darker than Indian Rosewood. Most of his guitars and other wooden instruments are darned good, but this is definitely the best one yet.
I think he values it at around $4,000 or something along that line.
