Monkeypod, Albizia saman
Monkeypod is a newer tonewood that's been catching on fast with builders. Its overall golden appearance with strong dark streaks make it visually similar in many ways to Koa, but slightly less dense overall.

It's relatively easy to bend and work, glues well, and has medium to large pores that should be filled before finishing.

Tonally, Monkeypod is reminiscent of lighter African "Mahoganies" such as Sapele. Its fast attack, predominate fundamental, and balanced response across the bass, middle, and trebles makes it an excellent flat picked or fingerstyle guitar.
