Chechen Burl, Metopium brownei
Chechen burl is an emerging guitar wood that's been gaining popularity in recent years with solid body electric and bass builders.
It has many visual similarities to rosewood and combined with lace figure and occasional flame these top woods often have exhibition quality visual aesthetics.
For burls, these sets work reasonably well. With normal care they cut, joint and glue well. Many of these sets have small voids and checks, which are common to the species, that will need to be filled with CA or epoxy.
