Snakewood on Guitars and Ukuleles
Snakewood is one of the most exotic, hardest and rare woods on the planet. Found in remote regions of South American and harvested by hand, prize pieces of heartwood with high figure are typically small sizes and difficult to work. Despite the challenges this poses for a guitar builder, the rewards are dramatic. Snakewood is incredibly beautiful and shines with a mesmerizing luster when finished. At Lichty Guitars we have procured a small stock and offer Snakewood on guitars and ukuleles as an option for custom instruments.
