The Sounds That Changed the World
Brazilian Rosewood – Nature’s Most Remarkable Tonewood
Frequently, the acoustic sound of the 1960s resulted from guitars crafted with Brazilian rosewood. Its unique capability to deliver resounding bass and shimmering highs remains unmatched by other tonewoods. Over-harvesting motivated the Brazilian government in 1967 to ban the export of Brazilian logs. In 1992 countries throughout the world joined together in declaring Brazilian rosewood an endangered species – in the same classification as elephant ivory.
A small church ornament company just outside of Madrid, Spain had imported several Brazilian rosewood logs during the 1950s and ’60s, before the restrictions were imposed. Later becoming a tonewood supplier, their documented Brazilian was grandfathered in, allowing it to be legally sold and used in the finest acoustic guitars in the world. In 2013, Bedell Guitars was able to acquire this entire Brazilian rosewood tonewood collection, making us the only acoustic guitar company in the world with a large assortment of fully legal, documented Brazilian rosewood tonewood.
