Ziricote (Cordia dodecandra )
Origin: Belize, Mexico, Central America
Zircote is one of the most visually appealing tonewoods used on guitars today. It bears intense and wonderful colors and has a striking overapping type grain.
A hard, dense tonewood, it is not a member of the Rosewood family but eminates tonal properties associated with Macasar Ebony and Rosewood, offering more clarity than Rosewood but more overtones than Macassar.
It has excellent low dampening qualities with a clean resonant echo-like character. Zircote pairs well with almost any top, however Spruce brings out a wide variety of tones and sound to the stage.
