Australian Blackwood Weissenborns

Known also as Black Acacia or Tasmanian Blackwood, Australian Blackwood is increasingly becoming one of the most sought after tonewoods in guitar construction as a more sustainable alternative to many of the old world tonewoods. It is a close cousin of Koa, the Hawaiian species of wood found on original Weissenborns, and as such the two share many of the same visual and tonal qualities.
