Sycamore Wood is specially known for having the best relationship between density/rigidity, that’s also why it’s one of the most used for guitars making.
This wood has a focused, acoustic and brilliant sound, and a quick drop note, which makes it more than a recommended guitar for sides making.
For all this, Maderas Barber’ Sycomore rings for acoustic guitar are more than a recommended option due to its quality and efficiency.
