Machiche, Lonchocarpus spp.
Hailing from Central America, Machiche is also referred to as Brazilian Cherry in some circles. With a combination of reds, light and dark browns and fine grainlines, Machiche has a beautiful look in between mahogany and rosewood.

Tonally, it's noted for its long sustain, and crisp attack, equally suited for both flat and fingerpicking. Like it's appearance, the tone is also in between that of rosewood and mahogany. The vibrant response results in a guitar with excellent volume and expressiveness.

Machiche is hard and dense, working equally well with hand and machine tools. Once the pores are filled it finishes well, allowing you to highlight the grain and natural color.
