The grain and colour of the wood can vary. Some ebony can have some brown streaks in. This is all part of responsibly sourced REAL natural wood.
Using Taylor’s new, lighter ebony slide will reduce the weight of the bang — much more so than a brass, steel, or even glass slide would. And it’s the sound of the bang, more than the actual impact, that will shock you.
Ebony has long been one of the most desirable tonewoods among makers of stringed musical instruments, tracing all the way back to the ancient Egyptians. Its density, durability, and dark color uniquely suit it for fingerboards on guitar and violin-family instruments. It’s also used for piano keys, pool cues, and smaller artisanal sculptures.
