Like Padauk, this is a very easy wood to work with, which produces a clear and clean sound.
Bariolé will allow you to build unique and precious guitars, with a striking beauty that will distinguish your instrument from all others.
- Quality: These pieces are not classified by qualities and are included within a medium standard of quality, in other words, when we select them we reject the cracked pieces, with serious defects, or broken or useless ones. Therefore, we will always find good pieces that can have some slight defect, nice pieces, or pieces less attractive, always taking in account variations in colour or growth rings that each wood specie may have.
We are very careful when we select the Classic guitar sides because of knots, depending on where they are they can crack the sides during bending process.
We also have to take care when working with sides that are not quarter as they can crack easily during bending process. Despite all this, as with the exotic backs we can find flat cut sides, those would be perfect for these backs.
