It’s not a common wood among the guitar builders but, it has a really stunning appearance which attracts stringed-instrument lovers worldwide. Purple Heart Turning Blanks is a dense and tough wood with exciting physical characteristics. It has a brilliant tonal quality which resembles the warmer version of Hard Maple wood.

If you wish to have a unique fretboard, then Purple Heart is the right choice. The ravishing purple color with a grain pattern similar to Rosewood gives you a captivating look and feel. It’s an economical and easily available ‘semi-exotic wood’ in the market. It’s a coarse wood with very long grains like Hickory or Pecan.

Working with Purple Heartwood is a big challenge. When the wood is in contact with dull tools or cutter with high-speed, the wood releases a gummy resin which clogs the tools and complicates the entire process. Apart from these simple complications, Purple Heart gives a ravishing and unique look for your guitars.
