Overseas customers please note that we are no longer able to ship any form of Rosewood outside of the UK. We are offering a Ziricote option to replace the Rosewood elements of the instrument. Ziricote has been chosen because it has a similar tonal palette as Rosewood, and is as beautiful if not more beautiful in it's figure. This option will also be available to UK customers as well.
