A new set of beautiful cypress arrived from Spain. The grain is as tight as on fine spruce, with lots of silk, and the smell is amazingly strong. Cypress is still considered by most as the flamenco guitar wood. However, it can make a great classical same as maple or walnut can, bringing a delicate and sweet quality for the trebles. The cypress is also a (visual) symbol of the Mediterranean world, and one of my favorite timbers and trees.
