Zebrawood

Zebrawood (Microberlinia brazzavillensis) also called Zebrano, is imported from West Africa, mainly Gabon and Cameroon. It is pale yellow/tan with narrow dark brown streaks (looks like a Zebra). Zebrawood is always quartersawn to get the figure and is available in quite sizeable lumber. While not normally available from luthier suppliers, it is reasonably priced and readily available from most exotic wood dealers. Zebrawood is not a common wood for guitars and I don't have any information on how it might affect tone.

I have made non-musical objects from zebrawood, and from its characteristics, I would expect it to sound similar to walnut, or perhaps koa.
