Malaysian Blackwood

As other Ebony species, Malaysian Blackwood has a high density, a perfect quality to reflect the sound in the sounding board like a few tonewoods can do.

Another remarkable characteristic is its olive-green color, what makes Green Ebony a very special wood that luthiers usually demand to make different instruments.
