Brrr-Zillian Promotion, 2017!

It’s that time of year again!  Every winter we shine a spotlight on guitars built with the “holy grail” of back and side wood, the one and only Dalbergia Nigra, also known as BRAZILIAN ROSEWOOD!  This wood was used on the vast majority of pre-war American flattop guitars, and to this day is prized for its beautiful look and sound.  Some other exotic hardwoods get close, but nothing quite has the focused overtones, lush reverb and sparkle of real Brazilian.

The wood itself is in increasingly short supply, and international treaties put serious restrictions on its use in instrument manufacturing.  We are fortunate to have a very compelling stock of new and used Brazilian rosewood instruments from Collings, Huss & Dalton, Bourgeois, Santa Cruz, Martin and several others, and over the next month we’ll be rolling out even more!

Brazilian rosewood guitars have held their value better than any others, and due to the scarcity of the wood, in many cases appreciate in value.  Once you play one you’ll immediately understand why!
