The Mexican Granadillo is one of the best alternatives to replace the Rosewood used in acoustic guitars. Many guitar manufacturers use the same wood to make the fingerboard, the headplate and the bridge, and the Mexican Granadillo is a wood that has a high density and thus, it is ideal to make these three parts of the guitar. These guitar pieces usually suffer a high wear due to the blows they can receive and the strings tension that they support.
