    That is good to know, kerneltime. Thanks for reporting back on this.

    You might want to check out the range of opinions. As an amateur builder I spend time on several luthier forums, and the most common term for ziricote is "crackwood"!

    I don't have personal experience using it, so this is also second hand info. I'd be cautious though.

    Laminate ziricote certainly won't be prone to cracks, so if you want the look that would be the safest way to go.

    Right, it is the Kala laminated ziricote that I was interested in.
