After a long hiatus, I can brag with some new wood just in. There are also other top-level sets bought in the previous years but need to get a chance to extract them from the vault and photograph.
1. Rio type Madagascar, back mostly chocolate with discreet ink lines and highlights, paired with full spectacle sides.
2. Bois de rose type Madagascar rosewood, uniform very dark chocolate or purple depending on light. Low weight wood superb for a Hauser I type guitar.
3. Malaysian ebony aka green ebony. Superb dark reddish chocolate with subtle green hue and an incredibly rosewood-like taptone.
4. From a pile of Macassar and Malaysian ebony fingerboards, a twin pair with an exceptional landscape figure.
