Mahogany

 

Mahogany is a most commonly used tonewood in guitar production.  Mahogany is occasionally used as drop top material. Mahogany is a dense wood with dark colors and close grains. The wood has a warmer tonal quality compared to Cedar and Spruce wood. The density of Mahogany wood adds a great punch and projection to the tone featuring a “woody” character.

Mahogany is well –known for its co-operative nature and easy machining. The wood has excellent dimensional stability.  Mahogany tops are widely used among guitar luthiers because of its durable and attractive nature. It’s cheaper than Rosewood and gives a parlor kind of tone to the guitar.
