Brazilian Rosewood / Fingerboard / 1970's / Dark Brown / Guitar For Sale
I am selling an Old Growth, Pre - CITES Ban, Brazilian Rosewood ( Dalbergia Nigra, Rio Rosewood, Jacaranda..etc) Acoustic / Electric guitar fingerboard.
It comes together with its individual unique CITES document ( CITES PASSPORT FOR FREE INTERNATIONAL TRANSIT ) as it can be seen in the pictures. For the last 20 years, every Brazilian Rosewood component that I sell always comes with its own individual CITES doc as that being the only way to prove the legallity and the authenticity of our wood. We supply the same documents to Don Grosh, John Suhr, Warrior, Maton, Melville and to many other boutique luthiers. In the CITES document you will also see our CITES inspection and our names. For obvious reasons I do not show those in the attached pictures. However, the CITES stamp and the relevant information are shown.
The wood is already planed and only minimum sanding is required. Please see the pictures. Any surface scratches are due to planning and will easily be removed after the first sanding. Also any warm hole and the discolorated part at the edge are outside the usable area and will all be removed when you shape the board.
There are no other worm holes. No cracks, No defects. Practically perfect and amazing quality !!! This wood has been cut in the mid 70s and since then it has been air dried in the the shed in our warehouse. Absolutely top quality and extremely sonorous.
It has an excellent grain pattern quartersawn and Very Dark Brown color, thus making it a VERY RARE piece of this precious wood which is almost extinct. Also, it has large dimensions and you may chose your desirable grain pattern while you mill it.
I have to point out that due to the long seasoning the color looks a bit dull. After the first sanding all the grain comes out very lively. Apparently this is a proof that the board has been air dried for long period.
Today, those are very sought after by any serious collector!!! Extremely hard to find!!!
For a long seasoned wood the cut ( quartersawn or flat sawn ) does not influence the stability or the sound properties of the wood. On that respect both cuts behave exactly the same.
Our wood is seasoned in the shade for many ... many years and it is the real high quality tonewood. Today this kind of quality is almost extinct. Some luthiers they might charge you anything from 400 - 500 Euro as an extra option and most probably without CITES document.
I hope my description is as accurate as possible. Please see the pictures and feel free to ask me any question.
Also if you need other Brazilian rosewood parts let me know.
