African Padauk, Pterocarpus soyauxii

Padauk has been used in the making of guitars and other musical instruments since the 17th century. The wood has a beautifully radiant coral red, red-brown, or orange-brown color, which becomes darker as the wood ages and is exposed to the elements. Padauk has an even, lustrous, and highly decorative texture, and produces a balanced sound with slightly emphasized, brilliant highs.
