Striped Macassar Ebony


 

Striped Macassar Ebony is a hardwood used for sides and backs. It comes from East Indonesia and is highly sought for both its striking appearance as well as its tone. It is up to you to decide whether the wood is black with light brown stripes or light brown with black stripes. Ebony is a dense wood, therefore it is a little heavier than most tone woods but this only serves to enhance its rich tone. Paired with a nearly white Engelmann Spruce top it produces a very beautiful instrument.  For the fingerstylist, this combination of woods provides a rich balanced sound. The ebony imparts bass notes that are full, yet not overpowering.
