q83 Posted May 14, 2005 Report Share Posted May 14, 2005 (edited) I just got a guitar body made out of Pau-rosa wood... I'm wondering if anyone's heard about this kind of wood before used for electric bodies. It's a brazillian type of rosewood I'm assuming, but the entire body is made out of it. I've heard of it being used as a tonewood for the back and sides of acoustics. Anyone know anytihng about it? Does it sound like alder? Mahogany? Basswood? I'm at a loss, I won't be building it for another month or so but I'm very curious, and I'm not very savant when it comes to foreign woods. Note: It's a JEM type body and weights about 4-5lbs.
