Latin: Cordia dodecandra Origin: Central America and Mexico
Ziricote is one of the prized tonewoods used in guitar making. It grows from Mexico through Central America and is easy to work with, turns and finishes well. It is one of the more expensive exotic hardwoods due to the demand. The medium to dark brown coloring has a gray cast and strong black lines that can be compared to a landscape pattern. It is commonly used in musical instruments, gun/knife handles, furniture and turnings.
Below is an old video of Rocky showing Ziricote guitar sets that we had on sale back in 2014. This sale is not currently running.
