Brazilian Rosewood

Brazilian rosewood (dalbergia nigra) was used to build the finest guitars since the early 1900s; Martin guitars of Style 21 and above were built with Braziiian rosewood until 1969. In 1992 an international group, CITES, identified Brazilian rosewood as an endangered species, and recommended restricting its importation/exportation; most countries honor the restriction, thereby severely reducing the amount of available Brazilian rosewood. As a result, Brazilian rosewood used for guitars today was either exported from Brazil before 1992, or it was salvaged (meaning it is not subject to the export restriction). Some of these sets are from pre-CITES sources and others are from salvage sources, e.g. tree stumps, logs reclaimed from the bottom of rivers, reclaimed building lumber, etc. We acquired all of these Brazilian sets between 2004 and 2010, and since careful documentation of the wood's history was not actively required by the government until about 2014, we have only limited documentation addressing the wood's source.

Madagascar Rosewood

Madagascar rosewood (dalbergia baronii ) is currently one of the most sought-after rosewoods for making guitars. There are many different kinds of Madagascar rosewood, but suppliers generally refer to any rosewood harvested from Madagascar as "Madagascar rosewood," often using an arbitrary scientific name of one of the species of Madagascar rosewood. It is a very nice substitute for Brazilian rosewood, having great appearance and tone. The trees are small, so it is difficult to find a full quarter sawn back.
