Malaysian Blackwood

 

Malaysian Blackwood is a nickname. This back and side wood is actually a Malaysian Ebony. Its tonal characteristics are very similar to Macassar Ebony. Ebony is a dense wood, therefore it is a little heavier than many tone woods but this only serves to enhance it's rich tone. For the fingerstylist, this wood, combined with a European spruce top manifests a rich balanced tone. Ebony imparts full bass notes that decay more quickly than rosewood.
