Raffles-MB CSB AX

Malaysian Blackwood is a premium tonewood that is well suited for all sorts of guitars. It has become a favorite of several well known high-end luthiers and it's popularity is growing. Denser than most Rosewoods, the sustaining, glassy tap tone draws comparisons to African Blackwood. It is slightly less brittle though, and unlike African Blackwood, most sets have attractive dark streaks.The Raffles (Small Jumbo) shape is characterised by its punchy, rich and creamy sound, with no compromise made to its clarity and imposing presence, making it a guitar that covers all of its bases well.
