East Indian Rosewood Back and Side set SteelString - A-Grade
Still commonly referred to as Ceylon Ebony because the medium-sized tree reached its best?development?in Sri Lanka (formerly known as Ceylon). It?s also sometimes referred to as East Indian Ebony or simply Indian Ebony.
Indian ebony heartwood is a jet black, sometimes with grey or dark brown streaks. Pale yellow sapwood is clearly demarcated from heartwood. Ironically, the very best quality ebony looks like black plastic.
Our Ebony (Diospyros ebenum) comes from?India?and tends to be more uniformly black than we have seen from some sources, however, most Indian ebony is not perfectly jet black. Most boards have some visible grain and occasional streaks of greys and tans. We think these visual variations offer character and enhance the aesthetics of most guitars.
Ebony is usually not uniformly black.
