This custom Grimes has a gorgeous look and sound with a sinker redwood top and a Brazilian wood called Kingwood on the sides and back. Here's some details from Cook Woods.
Dalbergia caerensis. A rare rosewood with violet and light black streaks. From the Atlantic forest in Brazil. King wood has been the wood of King's for hundreds of years in France, England, and Europe. Beautiful violet purple color. Extremely Rare and High Quality. Kingwood has a very similar "bell like" tap tone to Brazilian Rosewood. Kingwood is rare in itself and is an exceptional acoustic wood!
Framed off with blood wood and protected with a sweet gloss finish. Awesome feel and just wonderful tone. Check out this new tenor from legendary Maui luthier, Steve Grimes.
