Back and Side Woods

In Classical Guitars there are typically two options, Brazilian Rosewood and East Indian Rosewood. In my shop, I offer Cocobolo Rosewood as well as European and Birdseye Maple, Spanish Cypress, Walnut and African Blackwood. In general I think of wood type as part of the tone recipe and I now have choices to help me be successful in delivering the client's vision of the ideal sound. Take a look at the following to see if you don't agree with me that there are now more choices in guitar woods than ever before.
