OVANGKOL BACK AND SIDES

It, too, has acompelling visual beauty, with natural black highlights streakingthrough complex, interwoven brown figures. And it sounds like it looks,sharing the wide tonal spectrum of rosewood, with its deep bass andarticulate treble, but with added midrange fullness. A remarkable wood.
