Dynasty 6 String| Full Indian Red Sandalwood (Zitan) neck /Brazilian Rosewood Top

Background : Indian Red Sandalwood or more commonly known as Zitan is a highly prized hardwood since the Qing Dynasty era where it was widely used by the Royal Artisans . It takes a red/iridium color when freshly cut but slowly oxidises to black with time. This is another very slow growing tree . The diameter of a mature tree is also around 6-8 inches which makes it a very suitable only guitar necks.

The tone of the wood is bright, much brighter than ebony or maple. There are percussive hints to the sound. When played with distortion, it produces a big , inimitable sound that will ring thru the crowds . A perfect neck wood for twangy blues, Iron Maiden influenced heavy metal, or Yngwie neoclassical styles.
