Description Technical Specs The Inside Story...
Granadillo is a rare exotic wood from Mexico, Central and South America that delivers a strong dull tone.

The wood is dense, tough, exceptionally heavy (it sinks in water) and exhibits a straight grain. Occasional light blonde sapwood is less dense and contrasts beautifully with heartwood. Several resources describe granadillo as "a closely related cousin" to cocobolo. The Ellis acoustic guitar company reports that "Granadillo has a ringing, bright tap tone."

magnificent, melodic low-end tone July 5, 2010
Reviewer: E. Collison from Reedsville, PA United States  
One of the loveliest-sounding tone woods I've ever come across - like a bassier version of cocobolo. My pair have beautiful harmonics and ring like chimes.

While on the heavy side compared to lacewood, cherry and pine, these will not disappoint if you're looking for a richly resonant sound. (Possibly my favorite of all the Shooting Star bones I own, and I've got plenty.)
