Swietenia macrophylla

Also called Acajou, Tropical American Mahogany, and Honduras Mahogany. This medium to large tree occurs throughout Central and South America.

The heartwood varies from a light reddish-brown to a rich, dark red. Generally straight grained and exceptionally stable, it is easy to machine, hand plane, sand and finish. Occasional logs produce several figures, curly, quilted, and the rare plum pudding figure which looks like large drips running down the board. Used in fine furniture and joinery, boat building, and in the guitar industry for acoustic sets and necks.

Mexican Cocobolo Lam Top Guitar Sets

The wood is very oily which makes it difficult to glue but on the plus side the oiliness makes it easy to produce a fantastic polish on finished pieces. Wear a respirator mask when working Cocobolo as the dust can produce asthma-like reactions. Cocobolo is a small to medium sized tree and is found mainly in Mexico, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Panama.

Pernambuco Guitar Bridge Blanks

Guilandina echinata

Almost all Pearwood imported into the U.S.A. has been steamed to bring out a more pinkish-red color and to prevent drying stresses. Formerly the wood was used for carving, turning, drawing instruments, wood engravings, textile printing blocks, and tool handles. Stained black it is an excellent substitute for Ebony. Contemporary uses include woodwinds such as recorders, furniture, kitchen accessories, jewelry and other boxes, and architectural uses such as paneling and doors.
