As a guitar timber, Granadillo compares favourably to Cocobolo and East Indian Rosewood in both appearance and tonal profile. It has incredible hardness, broad frequency range, and a ringing tap tone.

Also known as Mexican Rosewood, Granadillo imparts rich overtones with long sustain, amazing clarity, and a focused, deep low-end. It also tends to offer a bit more sparkle in the mids and highs, very similar to Brazilian Rosewood. Its range or variety of tonal colour in a musical piece is among the broadest of all tone woods. It sands well and bends with relative ease. Over time Granadillo's natural medium brown colour, beautifully oxidizes to a deep, rich chocolate.

At the Wood & Strings studio we have many plans and models available for you to build with your Acoustic Guitar Kit and there is still flexibility in your material choice and customisation so that your guitar is unique and a joy to play.
