Indian rosewood became the standard wood of choice for fine guitars as the availability of Rio rosewood began to wind down in the 1950ís and 1960ís. C. F. Martin and co famously changed over from Rio rosewood to Indian rosewood in 1969.Indian rosewood grows to larger sizes than most rosewood species and well produced quarter sawn sets and value for money are the norm. The supply and export of Indian rosewood is comprehensively and strictly controlled by the Indian government and future availability looks good.
All Dalbergia species are CITES listed and require a special permit for export. We regret that for practical reasons we are not able to supply this item to countries outside the EU.
