Actually this is heavily spalted, curly Hawaiian Mango. This appearance comes with decomposition of the wood. Spalting can be a highly desirable characteristic because of the unique appearances it can create; but, too much of a good thing and it becomes unuseable–this is close. If you have followed my posts you might know that I have an itch for the most colorful woods that I can find to use in my instruments and I think that this is no exception. A Black Limba neck made a perfect match of color and figure. The binding is curly Hawaiian Koa and the accents are Vanuatu Maidou Burl. Hmmm, I wonder what it looks like under black light?
