East Indian Rosewood

East Indian Rosewood

Dalbergia Latifolia

Great bottom end and strong mid tones at a very affordable price have helped make it the most popular choice of back & sides in acoustic guitar building for many decades now, the strong but warm tone makes it a great ‘all–rounder’ choice.  Its appearance tends to be mostly a mixture of browns and purples.
