OTHER COMMON NAMES: Pau Ferro, Bolivian Rosewood, Iron Wood, Jacaranda Pardo, Caviuna, Santos Rosewood

Note: Morado & Pau Ferro are trade names for the same wood. Iron Wood in Latin translates to ‘Pau Ferro’. Morado is not a true Rosewood. Rosewoods are in the ‘Dalbergia’ Family.

Due to the short supply of this wood, we are no longer offering Morado for the Top and Back. Our Morado is now limited to Bolt-on Neck Features and Fingerboards only!
