Movingui, Distemonanthus benthamianus
Movingui (also known as Nigerian Satinwood in some parts of the world) is a dense and beautiful tonewood, with a unique yellow color. Increasingly popular among steel string acoustic guitar builders, this vibrant yellow tonewood often has exception figure making for a very striking instrument. Over time, its bright yellow color mellows a bit to a honey gold.

Movingui has a tone between maple and mahogany. A very balanced tone, it has fewer overtones than rosewood and a less dominant midrange profile than some mahoganies. Movingui guitars blend well with other instruments and pairs well with nearly any top wood.

These sets can have a high silica content, which can blunt some tools, but it bends reasonably well, and readily accepts glues, stains, and finishes.

All WOODSTAX items come with our standard 100% guarantee. If you are unhappy with the wood once you get it simply return it in its original, unworked condition for a full refund or exchange.
