The perceived magic of Brazilian Rosewood has been discussed for years everywhere from music stores to internet chat rooms. We're constructed 4 otherwise identical guitars using 4 different types of Rosewood.
     The backs and sides are Brazilian Rosewood,  Honduran Rosewood,  Panama Rosewood and East Indian Rosewood.    Each of these guitars  feature Adirondack Red  Spruce tops, and top bracing. 25.4" scale Mahogany necks with a Rosewood strip in the center of the neck.  The fingerboards are Ebony bound in Maple. Bridges are handmade  Ebony Pyramid style with bone nuts and saddles.   The nut widths are 1 3/4"  and string spacing at the saddles is 2 1/4"   The Rosettes are Abalone.  The body binding is Maple with Herringbone purfling.   These guitars are finished in varnish.   The bodies are Pre War Martin style dreadnoughts with scalloped bracing.   
 
Last Update.  All of the guitars are with their owners.  Thanks for looking,  and enjoy the comparisons.
