Brazilian rosewood (dalbergia nigra) was Martin's preferred rosewood until 1969, at which time they began to use East Indian Rosewood to make Style 21 and higher guitars. The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) listed Brazilian rosewood as an endangered species in 1992. Today, this rosewood is generally only available as salvage wood, stump wood, or from someone who obtained the wood before 1992, but these sources of Brazilian rosewood are disappearing. Here are several fine Brazilian sets from which to choose.
