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."
