Granadillo

Granadillo

Granadillo is an exotic wood taken from the Granadilla tree. It's a relatively new wood to American guitar making but is fairly common in South America. It is non-porous, straight grained, very dense, and has a ringing, bright tap tone. It works easily but can dull tools a bit, has a medium to fine texture, and finishes well. The reddish brown color will darken to a brick color over time much like Honduran rosewood. Sure to become popular for steel string guitars.

Granadillo may be downgraded to second grade for any of the following reasons: slabsawn, unevenness of color and/or figure, small, solid pin-knots. These second grade sets make fine sounding instruments with great character at a great price.
