    Default New Pheasant wood tenor

    Starting off with a new Pheasant wood Tenor this weekend. I love how this wood looks.

    Other than the noxious sanding dust it produces and the all too common white mineral stains, Pheasant Wood is one of my favorites.I don't use ebony or rosewood, anymore, and we don't have too many dark hardwoods here in Hawaii, so I very often use Pheasant Wood for fretboards, bridges and binding. It is one of the few woods that I cut off the quarter because you need to do that to get the feather effect. It still seems to be reasonably stable cut that way. Occasionally I use it for bodies, but mostly for the trim and parts.

    I would build with it more often if it was available more.
