Oregon Myrtlewood  is a true Oregon Native and prized by woodworkers of all stripes along our southern coast, but the best Myrtlewood is destined to become acoustic instruments.  Varying in color between golden yellows and  light tans  all the way to nearly black with occasional red or olive green hues as well... no two boards are the same.
Myrtlewood has one of the most consistant cellular structures of any tree in the world making it perfect for even transmission of vibration.  Myrtle guitars can be characterized by clear articulate trebles, pronounced mids and a refined bass presence.  Myrtlewood has the purity of maple without the brittle tone, coupled with the bass and depth  of Rosewood.    This is perhaps what makes it one of - if not THE best wood for recording.
