Introducing Blackwood on board of Paoletti Guitars

Why Paoletti Guitars decided to use Blackwood on its guitars.

About Blackwood main features:

Blackwood Tek is a technologically modified wood that exhibits the properties and appearance of African Ebony or Indian Rosewood. It is obtained by taking Pinus radiata through a technological process that uses natural products, without plastics or other petroleum derivatives. Its high density, hardness, and stability, in addition to its color (black or brown depending on the variety), make it ideal for fingerboards. Moreover, Blackwood Tek has a stable moisture content of 5%, and is resistant to changes in humidity and temperature with minimal fluctuation.
