East Indian Rosewood (Dalbergia latifolia)
Origin: Northern and Eastern India
The vast majority of the higher quality steel string guitars made over the last thirty years have been made from Indian Rosewood. Many of the world's top Luthiers actually prefer it to other roswood species like Brazilian Rosewood for several reasons.
It is a beautiful wood, it is plentiful and sustainable, the cost is relatively low compared to other species, it is easily to work with and the sound produced by Indian Rosewood guitars is superlative.
The color of Indian Rosewood ranges from red to light brown with golden streaks, but more often runs to various shades of purple-brown or a rich brown color.
