Macassar Ebony is one of the best Tonewoods I have come to work
with and it always stuns me because it delivers a full bright and deep
sound to the classical guitar. The depth of sound on this beautiful Spruce top will
conquer you immediately. You will feel her and discover that she is
tremendously intuitive to the plucking of your fingers. You will easily
find the way around her in order to make the music shine majestically.
That is how I felt while playing Romance. It is as though I had always played her. Gorgeous bass and a tremendous clarity. A true Spruce top Queen. Makassar Ebony (Diospyros Celebica), is a species of flowering tree in the family Ebenaceae that is endemic to the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia.
Its common name is derived from the main seaport on the island,
Makassar. It belongs to the commonly known Ebonies, a tough and
extremely resistant wood which is considered by many to be
indestructible. It takes at least 3 times longer to bend the heated sides of Macassar Ebony when curving the sides of the instrument. The Top is made with a tremendous cut of Canadian Spruce. One of the most stable varieties of the Engelmann Family which is typically extracted via huge choppers form the Canadian forests. The presence that Engelmann Spruce delivers is tremendous and so is the punch in the bass. Decorating this tremendous guitar was a labor of love and passion where the Russian made Rosette from Tula (Near
Siberia) is coupled to perfection with the marquetry on her sides, the
top and edges. The Rosette is made using a myriad of "pixel like" multi
colored pieces of wood until the most amazing design comes to life. The
same can be said of all the decoration on this beautiful instrument
which took 170 hours of passionate work to build. S.D.G.
