Dalbergia nigra
Brazilian Rosewood photoTraditionally, the holy grail of guitar tonewoods. In 1992, Brazilian rosewood was listed as endangered with CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora), and can no longer be imported or exported unless it was harvested prior to that date, and has an accompanying CITES certificate. The wood is therefore very expensive, and the quality of the remaining pre-CITES stock tends to be of inferior grade.
