Palo Escrito

This is the trade name for timber made from the Mexican tree, Dalbergia palescrito. It is sometimes also known as Mexican rosewood. It was first used by luthiers building classical guitars, but eventually, other builders began to take notice of the wood’s rich golden brown coloration with darker streaks. Compared to East Indian rosewood, Palo Escrito has a wider grain pattern and more figuring, as well as a wider range of coloration that can include amber and reddish hues.
