The dense wood of this unique mahogany is desired by many A-List guitarists for their instruments.
If a tree falls in the woods, and no one’s around to hear it, does the tree make a sound? In the case of The Tree, the answer is yes – and here’s why.
In 1965, a group of loggers discovered this giant, one-of-a-kind mahogany stood tall in the Honduran rainforest. After attempting to cut it down, the tree fell backwards into a ravine, but it was later rediscovered by a timber expert who called it the prettiest wood he had ever seen.
Initially, the wood was purchased by furniture experts. But over time, pioneering guitar makers started using it in their work, and the result was sheer perfection. Soon, A-List guitarists started clamouring for an instrument made from The Tree, and the legend of the unique Tonewood was born.
