- Acacia cyperophylla, family Leguminosae
- I'm using blackwood, beefwood, Qld maple and Qld walnut, several myrtles, she-oak, ironwood, vic. ash, minnerichi, mulga, fig. jarrah and wandoo.
- On my latest guitar I've used some of the desert acacias, Myall for the bridge and fretboard, minnerichi for the binding.
