Douglass Scott Classical Guitar
The guitar arrived on March 12, 2014 and is gorgeous. Bearclaw Spruce that shimmers in a 3D effect, while the Wenge back and sides are simply superb. A beautiful lilting sound to her with ease of play matches her overall beauty. She is acclimating to the studio, but I’m looking forward to recording her this afternoon. I will write or talk more about her at that time.
About Wenge Hardwoods:
Wenge (Millettia laurentii)
Common Name(s): Wenge
Scientific Name: Millettia laurentii
Distribution: Africa (Cameroon, Congo, Gabon, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zaire)
Color/Appearance: Heartwood is a very dark brown with black streaks. Upon application of a wood finish (particularly an oil-finish) the wood can become nearly black.
Grain/Texture: Grain is straight, with a very coarse texture. Low natural luster.
Rot Resistance: Very durable, and resistant to termite attack.
Workability: Can be difficult to work with hand and machine tools. Blunts tool edges. Sands unevenly due to differences in density between light and dark areas. Very splintery—care must be used when handling unfinished wood with bare hands, as splinters have an increased risk of infection. Very large pores can be difficult to fill if a perfectly smooth/level finish is desired.
Pricing/Availability: Available in wide boards and veneer sheets. Prices are high, and are likely to remain so as supplies dwindle.
Common Uses: Veneer, paneling, furniture, turned objects, and musical instruments.
Comments: Pronounced WHEN-gay, the wood has excellent strength and hardness properties, and is also dark enough to be used as a substitutes for ebony.
