Pale Moon Ebony

Pale moon Ebony also called as black and white ebony. It’s popular among U.S guitar luthiers and Africans. This Southeast Asian wood is the most difficult perplexing exotic wood in the wood market.  At times, it’s visually stunning with bold black lines on a pale yellow base. The volume and pattern of these lines are unpredictable and varies from one piece to another.

After resawn, the wood has a strong tendency to self-destruct. To prevent cracking or changing shape, it’s necessary to undergo wax coating. The wood has good working properties; it machines, glues, turns and finishes well.  The wood is very expensive and less available in the market. The visually stunning effect attracts guitar lovers.
