Curly Eucalyptus

Although Curly Eucalyptus is not a very common wood to build musical instruments, it has some qualities that make this wood very worthy to work with it.

This wood has a great mechanic resistance, hardness and elasticity, apart from a stunning grain. However, we can’t forget that Curly Eucalyptus needs to be manipulated carefully, because it is a wood very difficult to dry and which has some tendency to get deformed.

If they are well treated, Curly Eucalyptus backs from Maderas Barber are a great option for classic guitars.
