Honduran Mahogany, Swietenia macrophylla
Extraordinarily stable and easy to work, Honduran Mahogany is known for its strong mid-range and its warm, organic tone. It's extremely well balanced when compared to Rosewood, with exceptional projection and good volume. Because of its naturally even voice, Honduran Mahogany is popular in a wide variety of musical styles, from folk Americana to bluegrass and delta blues. It has a well-deserved reputation for creating a superbly balanced instrument.

Colors range from light, sandy browns to medium, golden reds, often with ribbon, quilted, flamed, or beeswing figure.

Honduran Mahogany owes much of its stability to its interlocking grain structure, but this can also make it a challenge to bend at times. It helps to go very slowly and bend at slightly higher heat. The open pores will require filling, but when finished properly Honduran Mahogany has unsurpassed depth and richness of color that oxidizes beautifully over the decades.

All WOODSTAX items come with our 100% satisfaction promise and no-hassle returns. 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.
