Here’s what Lowden have to say about Tasmanian blackwood:

Tasmanian Blackwood has gained a reputation as one of the most highly prized tone woods in the world, with good reason. Always highly figured and with a warm, responsive tone, this guitar sounds beautiful with either Cedar for clarity or Californian Redwood for even more warmth and response.

Lowden also offer Tasmanian blackwood as an option in their 50 Series guitars.

Tasmanian blackwood just keeps making waves in the international tonewood market.

Now who is going to tell Tasmanian farmers? When will we start taking this high-value, niche market opportunity seriously?
