Madagascar Rosewood (CITES)

The Madagascar Rosewood looks very much like the acclaimed Brazilian Rosewood, so it is one of the great luthiers bets to make fingerboards, especially because of its sound and its particular beauty.

It is a demanded acoustic wood to make fingerboards because of its hardness and its touch. On top of that, it is beautiful because of its drawing which is even more appreciated than the Brazilian Rosewood.
