East Indian rosewood is considered the benchmark for guitars. It makes a striking set of back and sides. The wood has a rich, deep, dark purple colour and is the standard by which all other woods are measured.
It is a beautiful wood, that it is easily worked, and the sound produced by East Indian Rosewood guitars is superlative. East Indian rosewood sounds good with any of the spruce soundboards. This kit, when built, will have a full, rich sound with an expansive tonal palette.
This species is listed as vulnerable in the IUCN red list of threatened species and is not sustainable. We only have a few sets left. 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.
These are all the components included in this kit, which will make an awesome, playable guitar.AAA East Indian Rosewood back and sides setAAA Italian Alpine spruce soundboard
