Tonewoods: "Genuine (Honduran) Mahogany

(Swietenia Macrophylla) Brazil. Yellowish brown to reddish brown in color, Genuine or 'Amazon' mahogany is exceptionally stable and consistently clear. Honduran Mahogany is much lighter in weight than rosewood, koa, or maple. In spite of its weight, mahogany yields a surprisingly strong loud sound with an emphasis on clear bright trebles. By tradition (Martin) used for Cheaper guitars, Mahogany doesn’t deserve this. Selected Mahogany is a Thrilling Tone wood."
