Granadillo

Platymiscium spp.
Also known as |
Hormigo|Macacauba
Hormigo Lumber @ Rare Woods USA

Granadillo is known throughout Central America as “the wood that sings.” It has long been considered a quite viable “rosewood alternative,” receiving greater attention and steadily growing in popularity since the exportation ban on Brazilian Rosewood, almost 25 years ago. Its density falls slightly under the mark of a typical rosewood, while not being near as oily. Granadillo is a quite beautiful wood. It has a base of brown-toned hues, highlighted by a variety of colors which can range from muted purples to reds, oranges and golds, Its pleasing aesthetics and great working and finishing properties make it a popular choice with guitar and furniture builders, alike. It has a natural luster and a high degree of chatoyance often emerges after finish sanding.

Not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Why We Love This Wood

A beautiful, slightly more affordable Rosewood substitute with at least 50 years of experience as a tone wood.
