MAHOGANY
(SWIETENIA MAHAGONI)

 

Mahogany is by far the most common tropical wood used in guitar making today.

The species can be found throughout a region ranging from southern Mexico to Colombia, Venezuela and the Amazon drainage basin. Its color varies from reddish-brown to pink, salmon, or yellow-brown when fresh, deepening with age to deep, rich red or brown hues. Mahogany produces a deep bass tone with a strong mid-range, and is an optimum choice for mid-size and full-size guitars (including Orchestra Models, dreadnaughts and Jumbos).

Because of its high stability, this wood is also ideally suited for building guitar necks.
