Leopardwood is a dense wood with a loud, sustaining tap tone.
Some builders feel that this wood contributes to a warm tone characteristic of guitars many years older.
Leopardwood's color is a warm cinnamon brown and its figure has very characteristic flecking that gives this wood its name.
Leopardwood is frequently confused with Lacewood, which has a very similar appearance. However, Leopardwood is much denser than Lacewood, and is usually darker.
