We have what we call Philippine Mahogany here. I'm not totally sure if it's different from Lauan, but it's a lot grainier than the Honduras variety. I saw this woodworker's website that wasn't impressed with it.

As for tone, I know someone who has a guitar made out of it and he's happy. There's also this project I'm helping a friend complete that has that kind of wood. I ought to know in a few months.
