Why use ROCKLITE® EBANO?
is an ebony type product that can be used very successfully in lutherie as fingerboards, head veneers, bridges, and guitar backs & sides.
other applications for the Rocklite® product include cue buts and splices, sawcut veneer for restoration, and many other craft applications.
All of this without the headache of all the usual grading problems!
On average, less than 10% of the ebony logging yield would be considered good enough for high class Lutherie, cue building and cabinet making.
This is mostly due to colour defect, splits shakes and pin worm etc.
now, with ROCKLITE® EBANO we are able to ensure that every piece is, jet black, arrow straight grained and sawn dead on quarter!
In short, as good as the most perfect ebony you have ever seen! Every time!
ROCKLITE® Ebano Colour Stability
ROCKLITE® Ebano is more colour fast and stable than most exotic woods. The latest technology in Phenolic Ultra Violet light absorbers are used in its production.
During pre production testing we subjected Rocklite Ebano many times to extreme long-term UV exposure, and in each case it held its colour far better than the natural hardwood or other faux ebony we were using as a comparison.
We would however always recommend that when finishing, with lemon oil, coconut oil, or any other finishing product that you use a finish containing a UV inhibitor.
