Malaysian Blackwood

Malaysian Blackwood


Diospyros ebonasea

Malaysian Blackwood is a premium tonewood that is well suited for all sorts of guitars. Denser than most Rosewoods, the sustaining, glassy tap tone draws comparisons to African Blackwood. It is slightly less brittle though, and unlike African Blackwood, most sets have attractive dark streaks (also, African Blackwood is a true Rosewood, Malaysian Blackwood is not). The overall coloring is similar to Ziricote, with black and dark gray colors highlighted by subtle reddish brown and/or green hues.


This is an excellent choice to Brazilian, The sets I have in stock are Premium Grade " Exhibitio Grade.

A stunningly beutiful wood almost black, with dark brown streaks. Just like the photo above.
