Brazilian Rosewood (Dalbergia nigra)
Brazilian Rosewood has long been considered the premier tonewood by both luthiers and guitar players. There is no denying that it satisfies every time. Tonally Lichty Brazilian Rosewood guitars express the entire range with deep rich basses, clear bell-like trebles and a symphony of sounds in between. The colors of wood can be jet black to having variations in shades from rust orange to purple hues to deep browns. While we currently have an enviable supply of Brazilian Rosewood, we are not actively purchasing additional sets given its protected species status. What we do have on hand is typically old growth, salvaged and CITES Certified wood. Please note: We do not sell Brazilian Rosewood tonewood.
