No Brazilian after 1965 until 2003.
what about those braz topped LPCs from '75?
I have meant on fingerboards.
Avast flagged that image as infected by malware.
That doesn't look like BRW. It looks more like overly-oiled IRW.
Set mine off too. Submitted for mod/admin perusal:
sorry guys. i just got that image from googling.
No worries. I was just surprised. I never get any malware warnings on mlp. You might want to remove it. I am still getting warnings on this page.
It looks just like the one on my 92 standard, are you sure it's brz?
My old eyes who have seen 100s of guitars -- mine -- over the years say that is Indian Rosewood. It isn't even close.
Not to be a Debbie Downer but I tend to agree. Braz is known for having the appearance of a dark brown ebony if that makes sense. Not saying it's impossible you have the real deal but I'm more used to seeing a uniform tight grain dark brown through out not the very apparent grain yours displays
You cant say a rosewood species by the wood itself. From what I´ve read only by the leaf itself. So you should know the tree if you really want to make sure that´s Dalberia Nigra.
I've seen plenty of lighter Braz, as well as stripey, swirly stuff (go look at a bunch of old parlor guitars w/ Braz back and sides, for instance). That having been said, it usually has an almost waxy look/feel and the pore structure is a little different. Seems like Braz usually has larger, but less frequent pores than Indian -- like it'll be almost ebony smooth with long, semi-wide pores here-and-there, where Indian will have tighter pores that are more evenly spread throughout the surface. Makes Braz usually feel slicker, IMO.
This is Braz:
Yup. Seems futile to me to contend that it's BRW when all indications are that it's what it would be expected to be: EIRW. I guess I don't even understand the basis for questioning this.
Does it really matter one way or another? Can anyone claim to be able to hear a difference in tone?
Well, Brazilian rosewood sings in Portuguese with a hint of latino tunes, while east Indian rosewood sings in Indian with a hint of sitar, easy eh?
