Ziricote Guitar Wood


Ziricote (Cordia dodecandra) is an exotic wood native to the Central American countries of Belize, Guatemala, and Mexico. It is a hard, dense wood, with a medium texture. The color ranges from medium to dark brown, with a green hue, with darker bands of intermixed black growth rings. Ziricote has a very unique appearance, which is sometimes referred to as “spider-webbing” or “landscape” grain figure; the variegated stripes produce valleys, plateaus, & mountains which are highly prized and sought after. If you're looking for “eye candy” with a punch, Ziricote is the choice for you.
