Ebony’s unique black colour is interlaced with Brown and yellow streaks in this exotic sets, giving them a spectacular figure. Its density is even greater than Rosewood’s, making this wood ideal for guitar backs and sides, although it is not very commonly used due to the little availability of pieces that are big enough for this part of the guitar.
Its grain is usually straight but can also be interlocked. It has a fine and even texture with very high natural luster. West African Ebony has been a standard fingerboard wood for factory guitars in Europe and America. It is often preferred because it is easier to plane and is more stable than other Ebonies. It is rarely pure-black, which is now largely accepted in the marketplace.
