A Malaysian Blackwood Classical Guitar Sides
Overview A Malaysian Blackwood Classical Guitar Sides:
Malaysian Blackwood is a premium tonewood that is well suited for all guitar types. Denser than most Dalbergias, its glassy, sustained tone is often compared to that of African blackwood. However, it is slightly less brittle and, unlike the former, most sets have attractive dark streaks (called landscape or spiderwebbing), similar to those found in ziricote or cocobolo to name a few examples. The colouring ranges from an intense brown with reddish tones to a greyish green with many shades, crossed by dark lines that provide heterogeneity and appeal to the piece. In addition, in some cases there will also be a light pinkish colour coming from the centre of the trunk.
A Malaysian Blackwood Classical Guitar Sides will have less patterned parts than the higher quality ones. There may also be more presence of light sapwood, the colour may be more uniform and therefore less eye-catching... But this is such an attractive wood that even 2nd grade sides are more beautiful than those of higher grades of other woods.
