RE: what kind of bridge wood is this? (in reply to benros

I think we spoke about Grisha’s DeVoe guitar in a 3D about a Concert given by Grisha in Boston.
The guitar is made in satinwood, quite a stunning wood in itself but rarely if not used for flamenco guitar building.
Francisco Simplicio was among the first luthiers using this wood for classical guitars.
Satinwood is generally quite a heavy wood and therefore Grisha’s guitar should be closer to a negra than a blanca.
For concert players, there are some big advantage in having a guitar made with alternative woods in times of Cites.

The bridge could be satinwood as well as made with a different wood species (a walnut, cherry, Bosso, Mirtle?).
Quite difficult to identify a wood just by this video.

Looks a bit stripey like Satinwood but hard to tell.
